(KSL News)--Angry family members of the 419th Army Reserve meet with military officials, hoping to get some answers.

The 419th was originally scheduled to return home from Iraq within the next few weeks, but learned an extension will keep them away for another four months.

Families met with authorities last night and demanded answers as to why the soldiers will not be returning home.

Kathleen Beall/ Military Wife: "What is going on? Why are you guys telling us they're extended for 120 days and the soldiers have not even been told what they're going to be doing?"

Family members and friends also showed concern for what troops will be doing in Iraq for the next few months.

Military officials say many solders will probably be in dangerous areas, driving fuel trucks back to Iraq.
