Homecoming for the 186th
July 4, 2003
Young Donovan Ross starting running Thursday morning the moment he caught sight of Duane Ross Jr. of the 186th Air Refueling Wing flinging himself into his father's arms for a big hug. About 40 members of the Mississippi Air National Guard's 186th returned home to Key Field Thursday after a 30-day deployment to Bahrain in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. While deployed, they provided
refueling support for air operations, aircraft
maintenance and other aircraft support
operations. Photo by Kyle Carter / The Meridian Star.
