home sweet home.
139th Mechanized Infantry Brigade, 47th Group Army, Chengdu Military Region returns home after spending more than four months in Lanzhou as part of the "Mission Action 2010B" multi-region, joint air-land military exercise (here). This marks the longest peacetime "out of region" deployment by a major PLA formation. (here)
