TUCSON, Ariz. — Airmen deployed from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in support of an effort in Turkey have returned home to Tucson.
Base officials say pilots and support personnel from the 355th Fighter Wing arrived back Saturday after a six-month deployment.
The group consisted of about 300 airmen.
They were deployed to Turkey to support the Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve.
Authorities say the goal of the operation involving multiple nations is to weaken and eventually destroy ISIS and the Levant.
