Airmen from the 914th Airlift Wing Return Home

There were some emotional reunions this morning at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.

More than 100 airmen from the 914th Airlift Wing landed at the Airbase this morning, after spending several months overseas.

The group was deployed to Southwest Asia earlier this year, but now they are happy to be home with family and friends.

Members of the 914th performed a number of duties, including aircraft maintenance, medical evacuations, and delivering combat cargo to American troops in the region. They spent a total of five months in the country of Qatar.
