Moffett-based airmen return from Afghanistan

After a four-month deployment rescuing injured service members in Afghanistan, 25 members of the Air National Guard's 129th Rescue Wing are returning home to Moffett Field on Wednesday morning.

The airmen are part of the 129th Expeditionary Rescue Squadron, which assisted with combat search and rescue missions while based at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan, according to Capt. Alyson Teeter. Squadron members performed as many as eight airborne rescue missions each day in active combat zones.

According to Air Force estimates, the group rescued 187 injured people, including coalition forces, local Afghanis and other military personnel.

The group is scheduled to arrive at Moffett Field at about 10 a.m.
