Air Guardsman Return in Time for Valentine's

What would you like for Valentine's Day? For thousands of families, just being back together would be enough. Members of the 165th Airlift Wing arrived home from Uzbekistan this afternoon. They've been deployed there since December.

Many of the Airmen were worried that they might not make it back in time to be with their loved ones for Valentine's Day, but everything worked out just fine.

"Been anticipating this moment, Valentine's Day," said SSgt. Dennis Craig. "Best gift ever, except for the wedding day. That's the other best gift. I'm thrilled to be back."

The 165th had been supporting Army exercises in the war on terror with daily flights into Afghanistan.
