It’s an emotional day in Central Oregon; the first day of school for many, and a homecoming for Oregon National Guard soldiers. About 50 soldiers will arrive at the Redmond Airport around noon today. Captain Stephen Bomar says its good timing for families who want to be there for the start of school. He says the soldiers were in Iraq for 400 days, working as convoy security to help stabilize the country. "Convoy security is where they protect goods and services as they get distributed to the provinces; and that helps build the overall structure of the nation.  Obviously they've done it well because we continue to move forward in Iraq."  He says as part of that mission they often traveled 1000's of miles a day.
