Asan Bui was born at sea 44 years ago. Adrift in the ocean aboard a wooden boat, Bui's father and expectant mother found themselves pitted against all odds along with their five children. Bui is now a lieutenant colonel with the 920th Rescue Wing, Patrick Air Force Base, Florida.
Pilots, maintainers and support personnel from the Air Force Reserve's 419th Fighter Wing and the active duty 388th Fighter Wing deployed from Hill Air Force Base, Utah, to Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates in April -- the first Middle East deployment for the Air Force's F-35A Lightning II.
Lt. Col. Barry “JR” Cupples, a navigator with the 910th Airlift Wing, Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, recently flew his 10,000th hour in a C-130.
Staff Sgt. Luiz Vicentini, an engineering technician with the 482nd Civil Engineering Squadron, and an architect and project engineer in his civilian career, has provided invaluable assistance to Homestead Air Reserve Base’s new state-of-the-art entry control complex.
