Just after midnight, families and friends gathered on Dyess Air Force Base to welcome home members of the 9th Bomb Squadron.
Anticipation ran high and cheers cried out when the plane landed.
Many tears were shed as parents were reunited with their children and significant others.
The Greig Family was just one of the many families that shared an emotional reunion.
