After a two-month-long deployment, Staff Sgt. Isaac Bucklin greets his wife, Staff Sgt. Cassandra Bucklin, on Tuesday as she holds 16-month-old Emma. He had been stationed at the Transit Center at Manas, Kyrgyzstan, and returned on one of the last flights back to Fairchild Air Force Base. The Center is being shut down later this year after the Kyrgyz parliament voted to end the lease agreement with the U.S. government.
