Approximately 100,000 military service members are currently deployed and fighting the war against terrorism. Most of whom, will not see their families for at least six months. However, there is the rare occasion where family members have the opportunity to serve side by side.
Senior Master Sgt. Timothy Lindell, a 763rd Expeditionary Reconnaissance Squadron RC-135 Rivet Joint systems engineer, and father of Staff Sgt. Kimberly Haithcoat, Air Forces Central Command knowledge operations manager, was one of the lucky few. He and his daughter were both deployed at the same time to Southwest Asia and able to spend the last four months of his service in the Air Force together.
