National Guard troops returning after year in Iraq

--A National Guard unit is heading back to Connecticut after spending the last year in Iraq.
Members of the Stratford-based 1048th Transportation Company are due to arrive 6 a.m. Thursday at the Army Aviation Support Facility in Windsor Locks.
The 120 troops operated dozens of tractor trailer trucks to transport cargo, bulk water and fuel. The unit was also called to help out in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in September 2005 by transporting food and water to parts of Louisiana.
