A homecoming ceremony will be held for nine members of the Nebraska National Guard.
They are returning home Friday, March 6th from Afghanistan.
Four pilots from the 43rd Operational Support Airlift Detachment will return to the state on Friday. Five soldiers from the same unit arrived home last week.
Gov. Dave Heineman, Adjutant General Timothy Kadavy and other state officials will greet the soldiers at a ceremony planned for Friday afternoon at the guard's air base in Lincoln.
The soldiers were deployed in July. During their mission, they were responsible for flying passengers and cargo from Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan.
