Airman 1st Class James D. Trussell, 21, of Memphis, Tenn., and Airman 1st Class Nidia Trussell, 21, of Laredo, Texas, wait for a flight out of Baghdad International Airport on Friday. The Trussells, who got married a month before deploying to Baghdad last year, finally got out to Kuwait late that night. The C-130 transport plane was delayed ... first by lightning and rainstorms, then by an engine flameout. It was midnight when they landed ... and much later when they reached their hotel. They are with the 67th Security Forces, were stationed in Baghdad's Green Zone, and are based at Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas.
