The soldiers are with the 1st Infantry Division's combat aviation brigade and military transition teams. They will return early Tuesday.
The main body of the aviation brigade began returning last week from Iraq. That unit is expected to have a majority of its soldiers home and reintegrated by mid-December. Soldiers have been gone to Iraq for about 15 months, conducting nearly 18,000 missions.
Military transition teams train for 60 days at Fort Riley before serving a year in Afghanistan and Iraq. The mission has been based at Fort Riley since 2006. It's moving to Louisiana next year.
