(Salt Lake City-AP) -- More than 100 members of a Utah Army Reserve unit are scheduled to come home tonight after a long tour overseas.

The 419th transportation company has been serving in Kuwait and Iraq since February 2003. The soldiers of the Salt Lake City unit have been in the United States for a few days and are scheduled to make the final leg of the trip home tonight. The flight is expected to land at 5:15 at the Utah Air National Guard facility.

The unit's tour was extended twice.

The Army says the 419th hauled more than seven-point-five (m)million gallons of fuel and covered more than one-point-three (m) million miles during its time in the Middle East.
