Appointment with Destiny

Senior Airman Heyward Wiggins feeds his two and a half-month old daughter Destiny - born while he was deployed - when the 108th Security Forces Squadron returned to McGuire Air Force Base on March 24. The 49 Airmen returned home after successfully completing a six-month deployment to Iraq. Their deployment was part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in support of the ongoing global war against terrorism. The 108th Security Forces have made history (see story on page 9) as the first National Guard unit in charge of security at Baghdad Airport in command of Air National Guard, active duty Air Force and Army and a foreign contractor security team.
