When 84 Oklahoma  Army National Guard troops marched into the hangar at the Air National Guard base in southwest Oklahoma City Saturday morning,  April 7, 2012, about 350 people, mostly family and friends, gave them a rousing and enthusiastic welcome. Their homecoming celebration marked the final return of soldiers with the 45th who had been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
