180th FW Spouse Lift

An F-16 Fighting Falcon is refueled by a KC-135 Stratotanker July 12, 2015, in Swanton, Ohio. Spouses of 180th Fighter Wing Airmen participated in the “Spouse Lift,” which gave them the opportunity to view an air refueling from the pod on the underside of the tanker. Military members depend on their husbands and wives for support, which is critical to the success of the mission. (U.S. Air National Guard photo/Tech. Sgt. Nic Kuetemeyer)
