Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - An emotional scene at Hector airport as families welcome home loved ones from Afghanistan.
Three members of the Air National Guard Security Squadron flew in this afternoon after about eight months deployed.
Most of the group came home earlier this month, and the final member is set to return next week.
Families met them at the gate with signs, hugs and smiles.
"Daddy, I've been waiting for you to come home."
Staff Sgt. Rick Gladue: "I’ve been waiting, too. Indescribable, I can't even put it to words. It's been a long time coming." "Amazing, our family is complete."
With this return, just a few airmen and ten North Dakota National Guard soldiers remain overseas.
