Mountain Home Air Force Base may be the happiest place on earth this week.  500 people who've sacrificed their time and energy away from their families, friends, and everything they know just got back from deployment.

 

The 389th Fighter Squadron T-Bolts, The 389th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, and some other support units just made their way home after a 6 month deployment.  They were supporting Operation Inherent Resolve by fighting ISIS targets in Southeast Asia.

 

Tears of happiness streamed from wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, and parents as they returned home for the first time in a long time.  Some were seeing new children they had and some were seeing their young children look much older as they stepped off the plane.

 

We, here at WOW Country thank, honor, and respect you and your families for a job well done.  Welcome Home!
