— A contingent of U.S. Army Reservists are expected to arrive at Pope Air Force Base Friday night at 11:30. The 141 reservists are returning from duties in Bosnia.

The soldiers are with civil affairs reserve units in the Carolinas, Texas, Maryland and New York, and are attached to the Special Operations Command based at Fort Bragg.

Upon arrival there, the units will take two-to-three days to demobilize at Fort Bragg before heading home for the holidays.

They served in Bosnia for six months.
