Family members of the 174th Fighter Wing gather in front of the hanger, awaiting the return of their loved ones. The airmen and women of the 174th were deployed to South West Asia in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The unit was deployed in early June for combat deployment. This was the last scheduled F-16 deployment for the 174th Fighter Wing. The wing will begin transitioning to the Reaper mission, an unmanned aerial vehicle, or UAV.
