Photographer: Mike Lynaugh - April 17, 2014
 
On April 17th I once again had the amazing opportunity to be at NAS Oceana to record the homecoming of a Carrier Air Wing, this time Carrier Air Wing 3 (CVW-3).  CVW-3 deployed for 9 months on the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) during which the air wing completed over 2,292 combat sorties totalling more than 16,450 hours in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

I would like to thank Kelley Stirling, Mike Maus and the family members and aviators of VFA-32 "Fighting Swordsmen", VFA-37 "Ragin' Bulls", and VFA-105 "The Gunslingers" for permitting me to be a part of this amazing event, once again, it was a day I will never forget.
