Camp McCool's brief impact

Members of the Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron-2 perform a flag-folding ceremony during "Camp McCool's" closing ceremony at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, Aug. 8, 2012. The ceremony reminded Camp McCool's final residents of its brief-but-important nine-year history. The camp was the site of an insurgent attack on Bagram in 2009. The camp was named in honor of U.S. Navy Commander William C. McCool, fellow EA-6B Prowler pilot, and pilot of the Space Shuttle Columbia's ill-fated STS-107, which broke up during its return to Earth in February 2003. (U.S. Air Force photo/TSgt Shawn McCowan)
