Airmen welcomed home after months in southwest Asia

Airmen return

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. – More than 20 Reserve Airmen from Tinker’s 507th Air Refueling Wing were welcomed home from a five-month deployment Monday.

Families celebrated with hugs and kisses as their crew members returned from southwest Asia.

These airmen operate and maintain the KC 135-R Strato-Tanker.

Their fleet refuels military and NATO aircraft so the pilots can continue their missions overseas.

This group is the second to return from deployment.
