US airmen assigned to the 727th Expeditionary Air Control Squadron and Air Forces Central Command Communication Directorate watch as a USAF C-17 Globemaster takes off from an austere runway at a coalition airfield in Northeast Syria, June 25, 2018. The 727th EACS was setting up the site to support their radars that provide a constant live picture of the airspace over Operation Inherent Resolve in Iraq and Syria, and the NATO Resolute Support Mission and Operation Freedom's Sentinel.

Memorial Day is a time to remember all those who died fighting for their country, just like A1C William Pitsenbarger, an Air Force pararescueman who took part in more than 250 rescue missions before he was killed at the age of 21. His selflessness and valor in the Vietnam War earned him an Air Force Cross and, eventually, a Medal of Honor.
