HILL AIR FORCE BASE — Five F-16 pilots from the 388th Fighter Wing returned Sunday after a six-month deployment to Kunsan Air Base in South Korea.

The pilots provided F-16 air support in the region as part of a routine U.S. Pacific Command's Theater Security Package rotation. The pilots were deployed with the 150 airmen who returned here last Monday.

“This deployment enabled the pilots of the 4th Fighter Squadron to test and train our ability to bring air power to the Asia-Pacific region,” said Col. Scott Long, 388th Fighter Wing commander.
