A flag waving homecoming

Senior Airman Michael Swenson, a C-130 crew chief with the 133rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, holds a flag out the top of a Minnesota Air National Guard “Hercules” as they taxi home from deployment to Southwest Asia on July 13, 2012. About thirty Airmen were on the flight returning today from a base in the Persian Gulf Region, supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and other military contingencies overseas. Two more C-130 flights are scheduled over the next couple of days, each with about another thirty Airmen aboard, redeploying back to the 133rd Airlift Wing. USAF official photo by Tech. Sgt.
