Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 251 Cpl. Kevin Santiago holds his son for the first time after returning from deployment aboard the USS Enterprise on Wednesday at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort. The Thunderbolts returned after being deployed for six months on what was thought to be the carrier's final deployment before being decommissioned. While deployed, VMFA-251 conducted combat operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and ensured the free flow of maritime commerce through the Strait of Hormuz between Iran and Saudi Arabia, squadron officials said.
