Four Delaware Air Guard members return home after six months of duty overseas

Four airmen with the 166th Airlift Wing of the Delaware Air National Guard return home today after a six-month mission in Southwest Asia.

The group spent six months in Kuwait in support of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.  “Small groups of Airmen are sometimes overlook when they leave home, or when they return home, but their dedicated service is every bit as respected and necessary to keep the Air Force warfighters functioning in deployed environments,” Commander of the 166th Airlift Wing Colonel Jonathan Groff said.  This group was involved with maintaining rations, the dining facility and the base fitness center.  Goff added that “these six members of our 166th Services Sustainment Flight kept those services and support programs going for thousands of troops.  We could not go to war for long without their essential services.”
