From Tucson Airport to Baghdad Airport

Arizona Air National Guard Security Forces troops load their deployment gear on a KC-135 tanker at Tucson International Airport. The 19 Airmen assigned to the 162nd Fighter Wing hitched a ride with the 171st Air Refueling Wing on their way to Baghdad International Airport, Iraq, for a voluntary six-month tour of duty, Feb. 24. The Guardsmen, who provide full-time security for the 162nd Fighter Wing at Tucson International Airport, will use their training and expertise to secure Iraq’s largest airport. The Airmen are scheduled to return to Tucson in early September. (Photo by Capt. Gabe Johnson, 162nd Fighter Wing)
