I’ve received a few e-mails about what units of the 81st Brigade Combat Team will arrive Saturday afternoon. Here’s the list, conveniently ripped off from the Washington National Guard’s Web site:

Alpha and Bravo companies, 181st Brigade Support Battalion

Headquarters company, 81st Brigade Combat Team

Headquarters company, 81st Brigade Special Troops Battalion

Charlie and Echo companies, 1st Battalion, 161st Infantry Regiment

Hotel Company of 1-161 is also returning home Saturday, but those soldiers will land at Fairchild Air Force Base outside Spokane.
