FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - Dozens of Fort Campbell soldiers are returning to the post along the Kentucky-Tennessee border this week from deployment to Afghanistan.

The military says about 160 soldiers from 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division are expected to arrive Friday morning.

The soldiers have been in Afghanistan advising and assisting the Afghan National Army.

The 1st Brigade is known as "Bastogne" (bas-TOHN'), a name commemorating the brigade's defense of the town of Bastogne, Belgium, during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II.
