HILL AIR FORCE BASE — Airmen supporting the 388th Fighter Wing's 421st Fighter Squadron of F16s are scheduled to return to Utah Wednesday evening from more than a six-month deployment to Korea.

The pilots, maintainers and support personnel provided air support in the region as part of a routine security rotation. About 35 airmen are expected Wednesday with 200 more airmen expected to return to base Saturday morning.

"The 421st Fighter Squadron Airmen are dedicated, professional and hard working, and they've made great contributions in an effort to continue to provide freedom and liberty for this great nation," said Col. Scott Long, 388th Fighter Wing commander.
