Families say good-bye as SC Air National Guard Unit deploys

MCENTIRE JOINT NATIONAL GUARD BASE, SC (WIS) - Friends and family of members of some of the South Carolina Air National Guard's 169th Fighter Wing said good-bye Thursday night.

Thursday's deployment was a swap-out, meaning these airmen are heading to Afghanistan to trade out duties with another group of airmen from the base who have been in the Middle East since April.

The airmen left from McEntire Joint National Guard Base for deployment in Afghanistan.
