COLONIE - It was a happy homecoming on Wednesday at Albany International Airport.

Members of the 109th Air Wing in Scotia were greeted by children, parents, grandparents, nieces, and nephews.


They served five months in Qatar, helping air lift and treat wounded.

Benjamin and Maria Gunn were married five days before he deployed. She sprinted through security to welcome him home.

Now that he's home, Benjamin says he wants to take a nap, go out to eat, and spend time with his wife.

See their happy reunion by watching the video.
