187th Fighter Wing returns home from deployment in Southwest Asia

187th Fighter Wing

After three months of deployment to Southwest Asia, airmen from the 187th Fighter Wing returned home to Dannelly Field Air National Guard Base in Montgomery, Ala. on Monday night.

According to U.S. Air Force officials, nearly 300 service men and women were deployed in support of Operation Inherent Resolve, a task force that works with regional partners to combat ISIS.

In December, the 187th Fighter Wing was selected as the future home of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. For over two years, unit commanders, community and state leaders, local business leaders, and Alabama’s congressional delegation worked together to land the coveted mission.
