SAN ANTONIO (AFNEWS) --
Several Pacific Air Forces Airmen left Kadena Air Base, Japan, Jan. 8 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Many of the Airmen are from Kadena's 18th Civil Engineering and Logistics Readiness squadrons. The deployment also included Airmen from Yokota Air Base and Misawa Air Base, Japan.
Some of the Airmen appeared anxious, others seemed a little unsettled, but all are ready to do their part as long as operations go on.
"Defending my country is one of my proudest moments. I'm ready to deploy (and) do whatever I have to do to defend my country," said Tech. Sgt. Robert Young, 18th Logistics Readiness Squadron.
Most are deploying to Iraq while some are destined for Qatar and other points in the area of responsibility.Comment on this story (comments may be published on Air Force Link) Click here to view the comments/letters page
