Some Illinois soldiers are returning home this weekend after joining President Obama overseas for a wreath-laying in Poland.

The president and 12 Illinois National Guard soldiers laid the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw Friday.

The Illinois troops have been training with Polish soldiers since May 19 in a chemical crisis management exercise.
