(KSL News) It was a happy reunion for many Utah families today.
Sixty airmen from the 109th Air Control Squadron returned home from Iraq. They've been gone since November... and they say it feels good to be back.
Max Gines/Utah Air National Guard: "Good. Real good. Glad to be home."
"It feels really good to have him home, because we've really missed him."
While deployed to Iraq, the squadron was part of the Command and Control Agency responsible for the management of aircraft traffic.
They also managed close air support to ground troops, flight paths for aircraft at Baghdad International Airport, and managed daily aerial refueling missions for coalition aircraft.
