Arizona Army National Guard members are expected to return home Saturday from a deployment in Afghanistan.

Twenty-five members of the Guard's 159th finance detachment left Arizona last August for a month of training in New Jersey before heading to Afghanistan.

The unit has been deployed twice in the last six years in overseas operations.

Maj. Gen. Hugo Salazar, adjutant general of the Arizona National Guard, will be present during the homecoming.
