Kentucky Air Guard engineers return from Afghanistan

Friends and family of more than a dozen Kentucky Air National Guardsmen greet the troops at Louisville International Airport in Louisville, Ky., as they return from a six-month deployment to Afghanistan on June 25, 2011. The Airmen are the first of more than 40 members of the Kentucky Air Guard's 123rd Civil Engineering Squadron who will be returning from Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, through July. The Kentucky Airmen comprised approximately 60 percent of Bagram's 455th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron during the deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, managing maintenance and construction for the 1,000-acre base and its 11,000-foot runway. The squadron completed over 60 construction projects worth more than $300 million during the past six months, including a new C-130 aircraft hangar, a 1,500-foot road and base housing for 500 personnel.
