Welcome Home Ugly Angels - Advanced Party

Over the last 3 days, our advanced party (which consisted of about 40 Ugly Angels) arrived home on commercial flights. Each evening, we gathered at the hangar and welcomed them home. I was only able to make it to today's return. Here are some pics I took.

Welcome Home Banners

I left Trevor with a friend, because I knew he would be upset seeing other daddy's coming home... and brought Addison with me, because I knew she wouldn't understand anyways. She stayed strapped in her stroller with snacks and a sippy cup to keep her occupied so I could take pictures...

"What do you mean my Daddy isn't coming home today?"

(Actually she was just mad and wanted out of the stroller)

There were several other main body spouses that attended to welcome home our friends' husbands! Ours will be home soon, though!!!!!

Since they flew commercially, they came into Honolulu International Airport and were transported to the hangar at the base. They pulled up in 2 vans and piled out... there were only about 10 or so Ugly Angels returning on this last day.

Here are the two officers that were in this group, our friends, the Matyskiela's (XO) and the Rashman's.
