NASHVILLE (AP) - More Tennessee National Guardsmen are returning home after a shortened Iraq deployment.

About 125 Guardsmen from the 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment are scheduled to arrive at the Guard's Volunteer Training Site in Smyrna.

The troops are from Knoxville's Headquarters and Headquarters Troop, Lobelville's Troop A and New Tazewell's Detachment 1 of the 278th's Support Squadron.

The Knoxville-based regiment of about 3,400 is coming home six months earlier than expected and all of its units are scheduled to be back in Tennessee by the end of August.
