MARIETTA - Dozens of members of the 94th Airlift Wing returned to Dobbins Air Reserve Base on Friday.
The unit has been deployed to the Southwest Asia for four months, flying many of their missions in combat. Community leaders, wives, children and grandparents greeted the 53 men and women of the wing with a welcome home ceremony.
"Very surreal, very surreal. It is almost unimaginable. Very exciting. Four months ago I was praying a different prayer and today I'm very excited, bubbly, and just thankful, very thankful," said Amber Harrell, a wife of one of the returning reservists.
Officials with wing say another 100 reservists will be returning home over the course of the next few days.
The 94th Airlift Wing recruits and trains Air Force reservists to help transport cargo and personnel in and out of remote locations. The reservists can also deliver paratroopers and equipment by airdrop during combat.Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5
