Hundreds of Wisconsin National Guard soldiers will soon return home.

The 724th Engineer Battalion left for Iraq last April

The 400 soldiers come from four Wisconsin communities including Chippewa Falls, Hayward, Superior, and Medford.

While overseas their duties included searching for and clearing roadside bombs

The battalion's motto is "we hunt what others fear."

The exact date of their return will be announced later this week.
