About 100 soldiers involved in intelligence analysis in Iraq will be returning to their North Carolina post and their families in time for Christmas.
Fort Bragg officials said the members of the 18th Airborne Corps Analysis and Control Element are scheduled to arrive early Tuesday
morning following 15 months away that began in September 2007. The
unit was originally scheduled to arrive Wednesday afternoon.
The military said the unit was the first at its level to be involved in major intelligence sharing with Iraqi military and government officials. The soldiers also provided intelligence briefings to high-level officers in the American command in Iraq.
