After Four Months Away, SC Airman Return to Hugs

200 Airmen, women back on US soil after spending 4 months in Korea

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - After four months in South Korea, 200 men and women with the South Carolina National Guard returned home Wednesday.

The Bennett family was one of those playing the waiting game, anxiously awaiting the arrival of Alan Bennett.

While waiting, son Mason just kept thinking of all the things he'd be able to do with his daddy.
"I like eating with daddy, sleeping with daddy and lots of things with daddy," Mason.

Oldest daughter Hayley couldn't wait to share her latest accomplishments  "I'm student of the month that he's missing," she said.

When he finally arrived at the facility, he was greeted with hugs and a sign that read "Welcome Home Dad."

The airmen and women were deployed for almost four months to help with security in South Korea.
