Tiger Sharks keep watch over Afghan skies
An A-10C Thunderbolt II, from the 75th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, takes off in front of the Kandahar International Airport, on Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, Aug. 2, 2018. The A-10 flew in support of Operation Freedom's Sentinel providing aide to Afghan forces. “Our primary mission here is to provide close-air support and combat search and rescue,” said Lt. Col. Sean Hall, 75th EFS commander. “The majority of our missions will be supporting the [Afghan National Security Forces], whether it be a show of presence or freedom of movement patrol. We’re out here providing overwatch to ensure if need be, lethal deterrence against the enemy.”(U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Kristin High)
