After the 162nd Fighter Wing's Family Appreciation Day, Oct. 2, the Arizona Air National Guard unit at Tucson International Airport, less than a mile from the school, had hundreds of left over ice cream popsicles.

Senior Master Sgt. Mike Soich, Tech. Sgt. Alicia Archie, Staff Sgt. Charmaine Pozo, and Senior Airman Nick Acedo from the force support squadron joined Fredrick Rodriquez from the base fire station to deliver them personally the school's 580 children.

"You have made their day," said Principal Linda Swango. "We want to thank the Air National Guard for thinking of our students. This was really special."
