It will be just a few more weeks until Lissa Richardson's husband returns home from Afghanistan

South Carolina troops are on the way home from Afghanistan. The first members of the 218 Combat Brigade came back from Afghanistan on Monday. They landed in Pope Air force Base, North Carolina.
The rest of the troops will be making their way home through mid-May.
"I'm just excited. I wish it would've been now but I'm happy for the people that are getting theirs now," said Lisa Richardson, the wife of one of the troops. Her husband hasn't made it home yet. She is expecting him home in a few weeks.
This is her husband's fourth deployment in the 13 years he's been enlisted. Before her returns, Lissa has some things to take care of.
"Fixing the garage, finishing the car, getting the yard ready, and redoing stuff in the house. Making sure all the bills are caught and paid up so I don't have to give him a honey-do list when he gets back," she said.
All of her projects will keep Richardson busy and help pass the time until her husband is safely returned.
