144th Airlift Squadron Returns Home
Members of the 176th Wing spent the last 90 days stationed at Bagram Air Base in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
After more than three months overseas, 125 citizen airmen and women stepped off the plane yesterday at Joint Base Elmendrof Richardson.
They were part of the largest deployment in the history of the Air National Guard's 144th Airlift Squadron, and members of the 176th Wing spent the last 90 days stationed at Bagram Air Base in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
The wing supported U.S efforts with airlifts and drops of personnel, supplies and equipment.
'We had a job to do," said Lt. Col. David Glick, deployed with other units from New York, North Carolina and Colorado Springs. "We all worked together as a big team, we got it done, we brought it home."
The rest of the deployed air guardsmen are scheduled to return home in five flights over the next six days.
