Making friends in Africa

Senior Airman Mike Mitchell laughs with a Senegalese musician during a concert June 14, 2014, at a local cultural center in Dakar, Senegal. U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Airmen were in Senegal for the African Partnership Flight, a program designed to improve communication and interoperability between regional partners in Africa. The band played multiple venues in the area to inspire children and musicians through the universal language of music. Mitchell is a keyboardist with the USAFE-AFRICA band.
