Several Members of 116th Return To Twin Falls Today

15 members of the Idaho Army National Guard 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team are expected to return to the Magic Valley today.  They are expected to be arriving at Joslin Field, Magic Valley Regional Airport around 11:45 this morning.  But some of the Idaho soldiers are having a hard time getting back.  After being deployed for nearly  a year in Iraq, some members of the 116th are facing difficulties getting home to Idaho.  Those in command say the system that is used to book soldiers flights home from Washington state, where they are being out-processed, is currently overwhelmed. Saturday, Maj. Gen. Gary Sayler, commanding general of the Idaho National Guard, said he has been talking to the combined U.S. Army and Idaho National Guard team on the ground at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, and he’s confident they are now putting new procedures in place to streamline the process.  He asked for continued patience and that everyone is looking forward to having every Idaho soldier back home as soon as possible.”
