NORFOLK- After months apart, a group of Navy families are back together again.
Sunday , the support squadron of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower came home to Naval Station Norfolk Chambers Field.
The crew left in February as part of Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 40, carrier onboard delivery or COD planes that make up VRC-40.
Where the Carrier Eisenhower went, they were there. “We fly from Bahrain with important people that come out. We also get high priority parts out to the ship so that the air wing can keep running,” Lt. Mark Guadagnini explained.
Guadagnini’s father welcomed him home. He’s a rear admiral retiring in two weeks after 33 years in the Navy.  "The fact that I could have a son that chooses to follow in my footsteps, all those things are what we protected and was valuable for me to protect,” Adm. Mark Guadagnini said.
