Alaska Guardsmen return from deployment

Lt. Col. Matthew Mrzena, instructor pilot from the 168th Air Refueling Squadron, is welcomed home by family and friends after a two-month deployment in Southwest Asia. As part of a military tradition, Mrzena was drenched in water upon arrival because today’s flight was his last as a member of the Alaska Air National Guard.
