Airmen support historic change of command in Afghanistan
Staff Sgt. Gilbert Gonzalez, Staff Sgt. Christopher Lilly, and Tech. Sgt. Jimmy Tron secure the NATO flag at Kandahar Air Field, Afghanistan, July 31, during a historic change-of-command ceremony that culminated a year-long effort to bring Kandahar under NATO control. The ceremony marked the first time NATO has taken full control of a large airfield and operational staging base in an active operational theater using a multi-national team. The three Airmen are deployed from the 48th Security Forces Squadron, Royal Air Force Lakenheath, United Kingdom. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Jim Varhegyi)
