Thirty Air Force reservists from Joint Base Lewis-McChord returned home Monday after a six-month deployment to Iraq.

The airmen, members of the 446th Civil Engineer Squadron, served in Kirkuk. They deployed in August 2009; eight of the squadron’s firefighters remain in Iraq and will likely return this summer.
