  • Stampeding mustangs continue rich tradition

    In the heartland of Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, a group of Mustangs are ‘Leading The Charge’ from Osan Air Base. These wild horses aren’t your typical galloping, long-haired stallions, but rather, they are the prideful men and women of the 51st Fighter Wing. During WWII, the 51st Operations Group (originally the 51st Pursuit Group) flew out of Naha Air Base, Japan. After becoming a separate branch, the United States Air Force soon switched to a designation system that linked the new wings with WWII predecessors. When a wing was activated at Naha, the USAF, in trying to establish its own history and traditions, linked the new 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing to the WWII unit, 51st Fighter Group, which operated out of Naha Air Base in WWII.
  • United Nations Command honors fallen Korean War heroes

    A rare, solemn silence lingers over a normally bustling flightline. The stillness of the runway temporarily fades as a vehicle slowly bypasses spectators rendering salutes and clutching their hands over their hearts, awaiting troops returning from combat. Coming to a halt, the automobile unveils six service members, but instead of walking out to fanfare for a heroes’ welcome, these members were transported by pallbearers in a United Nations Command flag wrapped casket and recognized for their ultimate sacrifice: dying from the Korean War in the wake of the conflict’s 70th Anniversary.

  • Tourette’s poses no setback for EOD Airman

    Tuning out the pounding of his own heartbeat, nerves tense as a young Air Force explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) officer disarms bombs in some of Southwest Asia’s most dangerous warzones. A sudden increased heart rate and blood flow kicks in as adrenaline rush reverberates through his body. Internally, things are chaotic, but the madness is masked by the man’s calm, humorous demeanor, which is a key character trait to his life-saving tactics. Despite his setback of Tourette syndrome, which is a nervous system disorder involving repetitive movements or unwanted sounds, his physical tics didn’t prevent his ability to neutralize bombs from ‘tick-tick-booming.’ It takes patience, finesse, and skill to make a career out of defusing bombs, and for Lt. Col. Kelly Hannum, doing so while coping with Tourette’s has been no small feat.
