More than 200 airmen from the Ohio Air National Guard's 180th Fighter Wing at Toledo Express Airport, will arrive at the 180th Fighter Wing early Saturday morning after more than a two month deployment to Africa and Jordan.  
While deployed, fighter wing members conducted flying operations on the African continent in support of combat readiness and security of maritime vessels, aircraft, detachments and personnel for regional and combatant command requirements.  
While serving in Djibouti, Africa, 180th Fighter Wing members and aircraft were tasked to forward deploy to Muwaffaq Sulti AF, in Azraq, Jordan, as part of Exercise Eager Lion.  Eager Lion is a recurring, multinational exercise designed to strengthen military-to-military relationships and enhances regional security and stability by responding to modern day scenarios.
