Friends and family members will be eagerly waiting at Sky Harbor International Airport on Thursday night as the 1971st Acquisition Team of the Arizona Army National Guard returns home from a yearlong deployment in Afghanistan.

The team, based out of Phoenix, consists of four Arizona soldiers.

The Arizona Army National Guard says, "The unit's mission was to support both U.S. and NATO war fighters by securing goods and services from local as well as overseas sources."
