OKLAHOMA CITY -

Some of Oklahoma's Finest will soon be back on Sooner soil. The 552nd Air Control Wing is set to be back at 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday at Tinker Air Force Base.

The 120 airmen have been in Southwest Asia for the last six months in support of the mission in Afghanistan.

According to officials, the 552d Air Control Wing personnel and aircraft provide all weather surveillance and communications needed by commanders of U.S. and NATO air defense forces to detect, identify, and track fixed-wing aircraft, maritime surface vessels, and to direct friendly aircraft against the enemy before they release ordnance against friendly forces.
