Kentucky Air Guard engineers return from Afghanistan

Master Sgt.Todd Edelen, a structural specialist in the Kentucky Air National Guard's 123rd Civil Engineering Squadron, tickles his son, Landon, in the Louisville International Airport passenger terminal in Louisville, Ky., June 25, 2011, after returning from a six-month deployment to Afghanistan. Sergeant Edelen was among more than a dozen 123rd CES Airmen who returned home on the same day, marking the first wave of more than 40 unit members who will be re-deploying from Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, through July. The Kentucky Airmen comprised approximately 60 percent of Bagram's 455th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron over the past six months, managing maintenance and construction for the 1,000-acre base and its 11,000-foot runway. The squadron completed more than 60 construction projects worth over $300 million during the deployment, including a new C-130 aircraft hangar, a 1,500-foot road and base housing for 500 personnel.
