This article reports that as Operation Iraqi Freedom transitioned from war fighting to peacekeeping, the speed of the campaign came as a surprise to some deployed airmen, but was a welcome relief to all. At the 40th Air Expeditionary Wing, U.S. chief master sergeant Daniel Mingo said that his troops were braced for the long haul, but rejoiced with the rest of the nation at the sight of Iraqi citizens hugging and kissing marines in Baghdad. As the regime of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein collapsed, Mingo said thoughts naturally turned to redeploying home to family and friends.
