MIDDLE RIVER -- Forty-one members of the Maryland Air National Guard's 175th Wing returned yesterday to Martin State Airport after 30 days of flying transport planes to support NATO peacekeeping forces in Bosnia. One hundred state Guard members have rotated duty for 90 days in the support mission called Operation Joint Endeavor.
The lights came back on, the seas calmed, the sun shined and the beach beckoned Marylanders yesterday.
Vacationers jammed the beach and boardwalk in Ocean City, only a day after Tropical Storm Bertha blew through the resort. Beach Patrol restrictions that had limited swimmers to waist-high bathing were lifted early yesterday.
