Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Members of the West Virginia Air National Guard are returning to Charleston after being deployed to Afghanistan. 

Six Airmen from the 130th Airlift Wing returned to Yeager Airport on Wednesday evening.

Officials say the members of the 130th Security Forces Squadron were deployed as security for forces operating in Afghanistan. They were there for about five months.

It is the second group to return in two weeks. Seven Airmen returned from duty in Afghanistan last week.
