WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. --
On Saturday afternoon, the 442nd Fighter Wing welcomed back the wing’s main body of deployed Reserve Citizen Airmen, who recently returned from a 90-day deployment to Kandahar, Afghanistan.
The group was originally intended to support Operation Inherent Resolve in Iraq and Syria, but was notified of the change a month before their arrival in Kandahar. The wing’s mission included providing close air support to U.S. forces embedded with Afghan ground teams.
