BALTIMORE (AP) — The Maryland National Guard is welcoming home about 100 citizen-soldiers from a yearlong deployment to Afghanistan.

The service members returning Sunday to Baltimore are from the 1100th Theater Aviation Sustainment Maintenance Group.

The unit maintains and repairs Army aircraft and related equipment.

The ceremony at Fort McHenry is part of the Freedom Salute Campaign, an Army National Guard effort to publicly recognize the sacrifices of citizen-soldiers and their families.
