Members from the 55th Electronic Combat Group welcomed home deployed squadron members, Oct. 7.

The 11 ECG Airmen returned from a combat deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  While deployed, members of the 55th operated an EC-130H Commando Solo aircraft.

The Airmen were deployed for three months, but to family and friends, it seemed like a lifetime.

“While our squadron has been continuously deployed for over 10 years, it’s always a pleasure to welcome home our deployed Airmen and participate in their reunions with family, friends and loved ones,” said Lt. Col. Arvid E. Opry, 43rd Electronic Combat Squadron commander.
