MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Twenty members of the 908th Airlift Wing returned home to Montgomery, Alabama Thursday after spending more than seven months away from their loved ones.
The unit, with members of the wing's Security Forces Squadron, had been deployed to Southeast Asia since August 2013.
Family members eagerly awaited the arrives, scheduled to come in two flights. The flights were originally set to arrive around 2 p.m. but delays pushed the arrivals back to after 4.
Even with an extended wait, families were happy to know their relatives in uniform were on the away.
Some sat on the floor in the Montgomery Regional Airport with little children, holding balloons or signs of welcome. There were flags and smiles, hugs and laughter.
One little boy sat with his American flags, while a little girl held a sign, and a big smile. The sign read "Miss me, Miss me, Now you gotta kiss me Daddy."
The twenty were part of a group responsible for protecting aircraft, the flight line, and the perimeter of the Transit Center at Manas, Kyrgyzstan.
