KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- The US Air Force welcomed home air men in Klamath Falls. The 173rd Fighter Wing honored more than 150 air men who were deployed over the last two years.

Tonya Nanneman officially welcomed her husband and 173rd Fighter Wing airman home.

"It's great to have him home now very fantastic. You don't realize how much your spouse does for you at home until they're not there to help you with all of the extra little things,” Nanneman said.

She said having her husband gone was hard. She was worried and scared the whole six and a half months he spent in Qatar

"I didn't want to know what was going on. It helped me to have a clearer head," she added.

Although it was hard for her, it was even harder for her kids.

"It gets difficult they miss their dad a lot and it's hard to get them through, they understood but just not having him there," Nanneman said.

Her husband was just one of more than 150 airmen honored today at the demobilization ceremony, for their service around the world and for helping Oregon during this year's fire season. Staff Sergeant Penny Snoozy was also honored. She recently completed a tour in Djibouti, Africa and she's glad to be back.

"Something that makes you really thankful to be home is to be in a foreign country like that. It's a really good experience but it's definitely not America. We have a lot of things here that you miss over there including your family and friends," SSGT. Snoozy said.

Right now she's looking forward to getting back to normal, heading back to work and continuing to serve her country.

"I'm just proud to serve with the 173rd Fighter Wing it's really great place to be and I am happy to represent them overseas," Snoozy added.

Not all of the airmen have returned home just yet. Many are still deployed aiding parts of the country in hurricane relief.
