The connections a person makes while growing up may add layers to their character and affect who they are as individuals. It can be rare and surprising when those connections come full circle, especially for those in the U.S. military.
One Liberty Wing Airman had the opportunity to be surprised by such a connection when he was notified he would receive a familiarization orientation flight. U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Derreck Day, 48th Operations Support Squadron Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape specialist, was selected for a familiarization flight based on his Air Force Specialty Code and superior performance.
