Mountain Home Airmen Deployed to Southwest Asia


More than 300 Mountain Home Airmen are being deployed to Southwest Asia facing "potential combat operations."

Though the official announcement didn't specifically reference an exact destination, a spokesman for the 366th Fighter Wing said the airmen would conduct "a wide range of tasks to ensure the success of providing critical combat power."

Meanwhile the 366th is playing host for the next 10 days to members of the German Air Force as well as the U.S. Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force, all participating in Mountain roundup, a multinational exercise at Mountain Home Air Force Base.
