Fresno Air National Guard Base, Calif. --

As the second time frame of the Reserve Component Period comes to a close, Airmen from the 144th Fighter Wing who have been deployed overseas to support Federal missions will finally be returning home.

In all, over 120 Airmen from the 144th FW have been deployed during RCP2 to various locations around the globe, including Germany, Kuwait, Jordan, Iraq, Qatar, Djibouti, and Niger in support of U.S. Air Forces in Europe, the U.S. Central Command, and the U.S. African Command.

So far, all but two Airmen have returned home from their tours of duty as part of RCP2. Those final two Airmen are expected to return sometime in March or April, completing the RCP2 cycle. Meanwhile, a few other Airmen from our Wing have volunteered to serve other overseas missions, showing our Airmen’s commitment to our Active Duty forces and the overall Air Force mission.

Once all of the RCP2 deployers have returned and have taken their required time off, the Wing will hold a ceremony honoring them and their family's sacrifices in their absence. The ceremony to honor the RCP2 deployers is scheduled for June 2020.
