CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Members of the West Virginia Air National Guard's 130th Airlift Wing are returning from a tour in Afghanistan.

About 25 members of the Charleston-based unit are expected to land at Yeager Airport Saturday at about 1 p-m.

The 130th has been supporting troops in Afghanistan by ferrying supplies and troops throughout the region on the unit's C-130 cargo planes.

Some of the guardsmen have been on active duty for up to four months.

Guard officials say another 50 members of the 130th are expected to return to West Virginia on Monday and Wednesday.
