About 50 paratroopers are expected to return to Alaska late Wednesday evening from nearly a year’s deployment in the eastern provinces of Afghanistan.
Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson says the paratroopers are assigned to the 4th Airborne Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, based at JBER. 
About 220 of the brigade’s 3,500 soldiers already returned from Afghanistan on two flights earlier this month.
