It’s a homecoming for some local National Guard soldiers today, but also a disappointment for others.  52 soldiers were expected today in Redmond at the airport, but only 18 are arriving. The rest are delayed. Local veterans spokesman Dick Tobiason says he was surprised by what he describes as the lack of good planning: "You would think they would do better than give notice at 4:30 yesterday afternoon for something that is happening at 11:30 today. And that didn’t work well. And then this morning we hear that they changed the numbers.  So that is not normally what we expect. It’s usually is very well orchestrated and publicized a week or so in advance.  We were shocked to get this late notice.” One local spouse told KBND News that she was told the soldiers are in Washington State and should be coming home to Redmond soon, probably in the next day or so.
