Your kiss is on my list

Tech. Sgt. Christopher Lindsey, a maintainer with the 911th Maintenance Support Squadron, greets his wife, Amanda Lindsey, with an emotional kiss at their reunion Jan. 18, 2013, on the Pittsburgh International Airport Air Reserve Station flightline, which concluded a four-month long overseas deployment. Over a two-day span, the 911th Airlift Wing safely returned 108 of its Steel City Airmen warrior force, capping off an award winning deployment to Southwest Asia. The Wing’s personnel and two unit equipped C-130s Operations and Maintenance Air Expeditionary Force support package, directly supported Operation Enduring Freedom, delivering critical supplies, equipment, and U.S. and coalition forces within the U. S. Central Command’s area of operations. Within the last five years alone the 911th Airlift Wing’s Steel City Airmen have deployed to over 80 locations throughout the world providing critical support within each of the seven geographical Combatant Commands (COCOMS). When multiplied by the number of days encompassing each member’s deployment the men and women of the 911th provided 337,151 days of support to the warfighter. With the return of this AEF package, the 911th still will have over 50 members deployed globally in support of our national security objectives. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. Shawn M. Walleck)
