A new airman first class writes a letter to her friends and family while “deployed” during the Operation Hero event Oct. 22, 2016, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla.  More than 100 kids participated in the mock deployment experience created to give military children a glimpse of what their loved ones go through when they leave home.

There, they participated in various activities and demonstrations by local base agencies. (U.S. Air Force photo/Samuel King Jr.)

A gopher tortoise waits to begin exploring its new home deep within the Eglin Air Force Base range, Fla., Oct. 26, 2016.
