“Today, we met Airmen on the flight line as they arrived home from their deployment to Africa,” the 133rd posted on Facebook on Thursday. “Families beamed with pride, tears of happiness fell, and cheers of excitement rang out as they deplaned, fist-bumping their buddies and hugging their families tight.

“We are so proud of these Airmen and their families for the sacrifices they are willing to make for our state and nation. You are what makes us great. WELCOME HOME!”
