SOUTHWEST ASIA --
 

In honor of Women’s History month, female Airmen from the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing built a dozen bombs, Mar. 7, on base.

These women are attached to a combat wing, which is setting monthly ‘bombs dropped’ records in support of the fight against ISIS. With this year’s WHM theme being ‘Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business’ having these ladies roll up their sleeves, to be a part of the mission first-hand, helped serve as a reminder that women are an important part of the military.
