Almost 150 Barksdale airmen are now back home in the Ark-La-Tex. That's after a group of 100 arrived on Saturday. Bonnie Strozier's husband, Chuck, was supposed to be be home Monday, until bad weather held up the flight. "It's really stressful, days go by and you're just wanting them to hurry and get home," she said.

But that's one thing these families don't have to worry about anymore. Chuck Strozier and the rest of the 917th Fighter Group arrived right on time Tuesday afternoon. The unit had been deployed in Afghanistan, first in the 451st Air Expeditionary Wing at Kandahar Airfield before being relocated to Bagram Airfield as part of the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing.
