Local families are spending the day with loved ones who returned from Afghanistan on Tuesday.
Friends and family hosted a 'Welcome Home' ceremony for the 136th Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth.
More than 100 members have deployed to Afghanistan since March.
"I'm very fortunate," said Josh Taylor of the 136th Airlift Wing. "I have a close family that happens to live here and so getting to be home and see them means everything today."
Around 30 members returned home on Tuesday.
Most of the people returning are citizen soldiers who work in the local community while serving in the Texas Air National Guard.
