Hundreds From 301st Fighter Wing Return Home From Afghanistan

FORT WORTH (CBS 11 News) – Nearly 300 airmen with the 301st Fighter Wing returned home around 7:30 p.m. Sunday from a deployment to support Operation Enduring Freedom.

The airmen were deployed for various lengths of time in Afghanistan out of Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth.

The reunion was touching for the hundreds who came. CBS 11 is told by many families how great it is to have loved one back.

For Maj. Michael Barron, it was his second homecoming.

“It’s great – face time and Skype doesn’t do it justice,” Barron laughed. “Yeah, it’s pretty awesome to be back.”

Barron’s first tour was to Iraq.
