Families welcome home ‘Red Lancers’ at NAS Jax after 6-month deployment

Jacksonville — For the second day in a row, families are back together thanks to a Navy homecoming in Northeast Florida.

Today’s happy reunion took place at Naval Air Station Jacksonville where the Patrol Squadron 10 “Red Lancers” returned from a six-month deployment. Yesterday the USS Iwo Jima pulled into Naval Station Mayport after seven months away.

VP-10 spent time in both the Navy’s 4th and 7th fleets during the deployment where they flew more than 2,800 hours across 11 locations, according to NAS Jax. The work included anti-submarine missions, search and rescue efforts, humanitarian and disaster relief flights and counter-narcotics missions.

The Red Lancers will be home for a year following the deployment.
