- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Another 300 soldiers are back to U.S. soil in Anchorage after a deployment in Afghanistan. About 300 paratroopers were greeted by family and friends Sunday afternoon, three hours later than expected when foggy weather delayed their arrival. The soldiers from Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson spent nearly a year in an eastern providence of Afghanistan. Channel-2 News reports many of the deployed have made multiple tours. Squadron Commander Michael Baka completed this third and first in Afghanistan. Another 2,400 brigade soldiers remain in Afghanistan and are scheduled to return over the next three weeks.
