Reservists from McConnell's refueling group have reunited with friends and family after serving two months overseas.

Eighteen airmen from the Air Force Reserve 931st Air Refueling Group arrived at McConnell Monday. The reservists had spent 60 days in Qatar as part of the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing. Aircrews supported aerial refueling missions and performed aircraft maintenance while deployed.

One reservist, Tech Sgt. Saxton Calton, held his three-week old daughter for the first time upon his return to Wichita.
