Red, white and blue will be waving today in the passenger terminal at Tucson International Airport as members of a local National Guard unit are welcomed home from war.

Twenty-eight members of the Arizona Air National Guard's 162nd Fighter Wing are expected to arrive around midday on commercial aircraft, returning from deployments to Balad Air Base in Iraq.

The Tucson-based guardsmen, all pilots and aircraft maintainers for the F-16 Fighting Falcon, have been overseas for one to eight months.

While away, they assisted members of a Minnesota-based Guard unit in supporting F-16 operations in Iraq.

I was at the airport yesterday and noticed many Welcome Home Troops posters. Wish I was able to get there for their arrival.

God Bless them all
