Home in time for the Labor Day holiday. Members of the Air National Guard's 138th Fighter Wing returned to Tulsa Monday morning after a two-week stint in Iraq.
Family members waited anxiously for the plane to arrive to shower their loved ones with hugs and kisses. One Colonel was especially proud of his daughter who returned after following somewhat in father's footsteps. She says her stay in the Middle East was a good experience. 2nd Lt. Shelby Wyatt, "I thought it was great, I had a really good time. They almost talked me into staying over there longer. I wanted to get home and see my family and everyone so, two weeks is just enough time."
Most others were equally as excited to get back home from helping keep the peace over Iraq. These folks were able to come back because another team from the Air National Guard took their place overseas.
