A group of airmen from the Montana Air National Guard returned home from deployment to Great Falls on Friday night.

A press release says 20 operations and maintenance personnel with the 120th airlift wing arrived at the Great Falls International Airport after deploying to Southwest Asia in October 2016.

Montana Air National Guard leadership, family, and friends welcomed returning members with a reception at the airport.

The 120th Airlift Wing has previously deployed with F-16’s and F-15’s.

This is their first large-scale deployment as a C-130 mission. 

Other airmen with the 120th Airlift Wing are still currently on deployment into the New Year.
