Happy return

The 911th Airlift Wing in Pittsburgh welcomed home Thursday its first round of reservists from deployment in Afghanistan. Shown here in an emotional embrace are Crestview High School graduates Dustin Dickinson, 21, of New Waterford and his girlfriend, 20-year-old Ali Kozlowski from Columbiana. Dustin served a six-month deployment and is an aircraft mechanic for the U.S. Air Force. Ali is a Kent State University at Salem student. (Submitted photo)
