The Defense Forces will allow more than 2,000 conscripts home by the end of the week as they complete their eight to 11 months of service.

Many of the soldiers lined up at a ceremony on Friday at Tallinn's Freedom Square with their brigade receiving a flag from the city government.

The conscripts were the first to form a motorized unit of non-professional soldiers as the Defense Forces is increasing the importance of armored personnel carriers.

Around 3,200 men and 16 women began their service last year.
