The first of the deployed 3rd Infantry Division brigades is on its way home from Iraq. No, not Fort Benning's 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, which isn't due home until June.
Instead, soon-to-end its 15-month tour is the Fort Stewart-based 1st Brigade Combat Team, which left for Anbar province in Iraq in January 2007.
The first group to arrive, called the "torch party," arrived at Cottrell Field Wednesday night.
