(KSL News) Christmas came early for several families today.

With hugs and kisses, families and friends welcomed home the 25 airmen from the 151st Security Forces Squadron of the Utah Air National Guard.

The airmen and women had been serving in Saudi Arabia since May.

Staff Sgt. Anthony Gonzales said, "It's good to be back after being gone so long. It's good to be back with family and friends."

During their deployment, the group provided protection for coalition and noncombatant forces, as well as convoy security, base defense and law enforcement.
