Guard Members Back from Middle East

Laramie, Wy – Thirty-one members of the Wyoming Air
National Guard have returned home.
The unit spent the last two months in the Middle East --providing airlift support for U-S forces in Iraq.
The members got back to Cheyenne Thursday afternoon.
Mission Commander Colonel Stephen Anderson says the time spent in Kuwait was taxing with the temperature often around 120 degrees. The unit also had to deal with 40 mile an hour winds.
