ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The first of several groups of personnel deployed overseas from Elmendorf Air Force Base are expected home Friday.
Elmendorf's Third Wing has about 800 people deployed to several countries.
Most are in Turkey -- including 30 expected home Friday -- to support Operation Northern Watch, the aircraft patrol that enforces the no-fly zone in northern Iraq.
The remaining deployed personnel are expected to return to Elmendorf within 10 days.
