New deployment posture adopted at Whiteman: Team youth support Operation Spirit
WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. - Young "Airmen" load onto a bus April 18 during Operation Spirit as they prepare to go to the flightline and board an awaiting C-130. The "Airmen" participated in a mock deployment to Kabul, Afghanistan. Operation Spirit is a simulated deployment line for school-aged kids that allows children to experience what their military parents go through during a deployment. The "Airmen" were accompanied by their parents and received goodies form several base agencies. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Jason Barebo)
