Alaska Guardsmen return from deployment

Lt. Col. Buck Smith is welcomed home for the last time by his wife Karyn just outside of the 168th Maintenance Group’s hanger at Eielson AFB, Alaska, October 16, 2016, where he and 33 other Airmen from the interior-Alaska Air Guard unit, were greeted by friends and family after they returned home from an extended deployment to Southwest Asia. This was the final deployment for Smith, who will be retiring from the 168th Wing in December 2016. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Senior Master Sgt. Paul Mann/Released)
