It was a memorable day for family and friends of 70 Phoenix-based soldiers as their loved ones returned home Thursday from active duty.

The troops were deployed in Qatar in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. It was the first time the Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment 850th Military Police Battalion of the Arizona Army National Guard was mobilized, according to Army spokesman Sgt. Ed Balaban.

The unit arrived about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the 161st Air Refueling Wing located at 24th Street and Old Tower Road in Phoenix.
