Friday, Jan. 18, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

Three dozen members of the Air Force Reserve's 911th Airlift Wing in Moon returned home Thursday night after completing a four-month deployment in Southwest Asia.

Another 46 reservists from the base are expected home by week's end, the 911th said.

The 911th said those deployed compiled more than 2,000 hours of flight time in 800 sorties that moved more than 6,000 passengers, 300 medical patients and 3,000 tons of cargo in C-130 planes. More than 50 members from the base remain deployed overseas.
