GA Soldiers Return

SAVANNAH, Ga (AP) -- A group of 40 soldiers have returned home after nine months of serving in Afghanistan.

The final flight of the 3rd Infantry Division returned to Hunter Army Airfield on Saturday. The unit -- comprised of soldiers from 10 states -- served in southern Afghanistan and helped train Afghan army aviation personnel and supported combat operations.

Master Sgt. Raphael Suarez says that he was deployed just after the birth of his son, Erick, and had to leave his wife -- who is a former soldier -- to take care of their children on her own.

Suarez has been deployed to Afghanistan three times and has been sent to Iraq twice.
