FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - The last soldiers with the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division have returned home from their final mission with the unit.

Media reported the soldiers returned on Sunday to Fort Campbell after a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan.

It was the last mission for the brigade, which will be inactivated later this year. The 4th Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division is among 10 Army brigade combat teams that will shut down by the end of 2015.

The Fort Campbell team became famous as the "Band of Brothers" in a book by historian Stephen Ambrose and a subsequent HBO miniseries produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.
