OKLAHOMA CITY -- About 40 Air Force Reserve security team members with the 507th Air Refueling Wing at Tinker Air Force Base will return Monday from duty in Iraq.

The airmen have spent the past six months providing security at an American air base in Kirkuk in northern Iraq.

Two of the airmen became fathers while deployed and will be seeing their children for the first time.

The group is scheduled to arrive on separate flights about 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City.
