Nearly 250 Ft. Knox soldiers will be welcomed home Wednesday following a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan.

The members of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division have been operating in the southern province of Zabul, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The Ft. Knox soldiers assisted Afghan security forces, government, and police forces as they transitioned to independent security and governance.

Soldiers in the unit will continue to return to Ft. Knox in small groups through May of next year.

Wednesday’s welcome home ceremony is being held at 4:30 am eastern, at the Natcher Physical Fitness Center.
