BOISE -- They've spent 6 months at an undisclosed location in southwest Asia, and now they're home.
Airmen from the 366th Maintenance Group and 389th Fighter Squadron, 'T-Bolts,' returned from the journey on Thursday. The group departed a commercial flight at the Boise Airport.
Families, friends and fellow Airmen gathered at Mountain Home Air Force Base to welcome them home.
Military officials say the Airmen can now look forward to a few weeks of rest and family time before getting back to the mission of providing airpower to the 366th Fighter Wing.
