Defenders deescalate situation downrange, prevent potential catastrophe
Airmen 1st Class Giovanni and Drew, 451st Expeditionary Support Squadron flightline security element members, deescalated a potential volatile situation during an incident where unknown convoy approached their post on Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan. Their keen senses, trust in each other, communication with others and training all came together, effectively thwarting a potential catastrophe without having to resort to firing their weapons.
