Eight more members of the 186th Air Refueling Wing are on their way to duty overseas.

They departed Key Field Tuesday morning. Unit members have been departing and arriving since Sunday, June 23.

More than 70 guardsmen based in Meridian should be returning on Wednesday.

"These people have been gone 60-90 days, so I'm sure their families will be looking forward to seeing them, as we are," said Lt. Col. Randy Pope.

After Wednesday, less than 40 members of the 186th will still be in Turkey.
