Homecoming of Wyoming Air National Guard

By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo. - More than 100 Wyoming Air National Guard are returning home to Cheyenne this week after being deployed for over 120 days.

They were greeted with warm hugs from family and friends that, it seemed, could not be happier to see them. And they, along with the Governor, were able to greet them as soon as the stepped off the plane.

They have been flying missions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.

"I am feeling super glad to be home," Matthew Torres said. "It was a long trip with a lot of stops along the way."

Two of the air crafts arrived Wednesday, and one will be landing Thursday, and another on Saturday.
