MOBILE, ALA. — Valentine’s Day will be special for members of an Alabama National Guard unit that’s coming home from Afghanistan.

About 190 members of the 226th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade are returning home to Mobile on Friday morning. The troops will be welcomed by family members and friends at an armory in the port city.

The group deployed in April 2013, traveling first to Fort Hood in Texas for training. Then they moved overseas to Afghanistan.

The soldiers assisted with management operations for five base camps in Kabul. They also helped with training for police and soldiers and worked on infrastructure projects.
