Half-a dozen Airmen of the Delaware Air National Guard return home on May 9, 2013, to the New Castle Air National Guard Base aboard a C-130 aircraft from the 136th Airlift Wing, Texas ANG with additional Airmen from the Texas unit. The Airmen completed deployments that began in late February to the Southwest Asia combat zone where they served in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. A dozen more Delaware ANG Airmen are scheduled to return home in a Delaware C-130 Monday, May 13. The returning Delaware Air Guard Airmen are from two groups in the 166th Airlift Wing; the 166th Operations Group, which includes all C-130 aircrew and other Airmen with various critical job functions, and the 166th Maintenance Group, which includes crews who maintain and repair the aircraft. The Airmen are part of a contingent of about 100 unit Airmen flying and fixing C-130 aircraft for up to 120 days under U.S. Air Force Central Command, and can operate anywhere in USCENTCOM's 20-nation area of responsibility.
