LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - About 100 soldiers from Fort Sill are returning to Oklahoma after a deployment to the United Arab Emirates.
A welcome-home ceremony for the soldiers will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Fort Sill's Rinehart Fitness Center. The soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 14th Field Artillery, were training UAE and other coalition forces.
Fort Sill officials said in a press release the soldiers were the first to conduct a "joint live fire exercise" with a UAE military unit in that country.
