The war in Afghanistan might have officially been declared over, but Nebraska Air National Guard personnel are still being deployed to the Middle East.
Fifty members of the 155th Air Refueling Wing have been deployed to the region.
The Guard personnel are members of the 155th Air Refueling Wing. It will be a six-month deployment.
The airmen and women come from the 155th Security Forces Squadron, the 155th Force Support Squadron and 155th Civil Engineer Squadron. They are based in Lincoln.
The 155th Operations Group will also deploy, but for a shorter, one-month mission.
