CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - All of the nearly 6,500 West Virginia National Guard members are in the U.S. for the first time since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The final two units returned from Africa and Afghanistan over the weekend. They will come back to West Virginia this week after completing demobilization in Mississippi and Indiana.
The Charleston Daily Mail (http://bit.ly/yGvOnU) reports that Adj. General James Hoyer briefed a legislative committee on the Guard's status Monday.
Hoyer told lawmakers that the next overseas deployment is in March. A unit from the 130th Airlift Wing will deploy to Afghanistan for four months.
