Freezing Temps Don't Chill Welcome Home For Airmen

Military families braved freezing temperatures Tuesday evening to welcome home their loved ones from Afghanistan.

Some 300 airmen stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base returned home after a four month deployment. Members of the 335th Fighter Squadron were deployed in late August as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.

The squadron, with its F-15E Strike Eagles, provided close-air support and maintenance for aircraft in the region. The Air Force says the 335th monitored the skies over Afghanistan and protected coalition service members on the ground.
