About 150 members of the Oklahoma National Guard's 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team returned home Thursday from deployment in Afghanistan and Kuwait.


Officials said another 150 soldiers are scheduled to arrive at 10 a.m. Saturday at Will Rogers Air National Guard Base on SW 54 just west of Will Rogers World Airport.

This will be the final large group to return, officials said.

Nearly 3,000 Oklahoma National Guardsmen from the 45th were deployed in June.
