(AP) A person familiar with President Barack Obama's State of the Union address says he will announce that 34,000 U.S. troops will be home from Afghanistan one year from Tuesday.


That's about half the U.S. troops currently in Afghanistan. The decision marks the next phase in Obama's plans to end the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan by the end of 2014.


The person who provided the information did so on condition of anonymity to discuss the drawdown before the president's announcement.
