Louisville, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky Air Guardsmen are returned to the Bluegrass Tuesday morning, after helping with hurricane relief in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria.
Guard officials say 35 members of the Kentucky Air Guard’s 123rd Contingency Response Group completed a three week deployment mission in Puerto Rico's capital of San Juan.
Officials say the team processed more than 7 million pounds of items used in for humanitarian aid.
This was the groups second deployment for hurricane relief this year. The unit also sent 43 Airmen to Texas at the end of August to help following Hurricane Harvey.
