Spending Father's Day Protecting Their Country
Most deployed airmen will have to settle for a few minutes on the phone or Skype with their dad this father's day. However, Airman First Class Tyler Mills of the 455th Expeditionary Security Forces squadron is fortunate enough to have his stepfather with him at Bagram Airfield.
"It he's tremendously. I mean, you go across the street to talk to your dad about whatever issues you're having at work or at home… and you don't have to worry about picking a time to Skype your family or any of that, you just, he's here," said Airman First Class Tyler Mills,
As Master Sergeant Gregory McElvaney of the Joint Theater Trauma System enjoy's a friendly game of pool with his son, he's reminded of just how lucky they are to be able to spend time together.
"I have somebody close and personal that knows me, that can tell if I'm having a bad day or that I can vent to, and I would hope that he would feel the same way," Master Sergeant Gregory McElvaney.
Master Sergeant McElvaney has been in the air force for 20 years, so this may be his last deployment… but he extremely happy that he is here with his son on his first.
