  • Deployed Airmen find hope, resiliency through wingmen

    As COVID-19 continues to impact deployments around the world, Airmen down-range found hope in their wingmen and showed true resiliency when challenges were thrown their way. Due to the unforeseen mission impacts due to COVID-19, the 729th Air Control Squadron at Hill AFB, Utah, was unable to replace the members of the 726th ACS on time.
