Valdosta, GA - After six months at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan Dave Haworth came home. No one was happier than his son Christopher and wife Kathy.

Kathy Haworth, returning pilot's wife: "When I saw his jet land, it was just a moment I'll never forget, I'm just so happy."

Haworth was one of eleven pilots to come home to Moody Air Force Base Tuesday evening. The thought of being reunited with their families was never far away as they flew A-10's supporting the troops on the ground.

Dave Haworth, United States Air Force: "You dream about it-- not just the six months that we're gone; but you dream about it all the time as a chance to go off and serve your country and then to come home to your family-- the ones you love, and that's what you do it for."

Over the next week roughly 400 airmen will be returning home from Afghanistan. The eleven pilots that returned this evening were part of Moody's 74th fighter squadron.
