  • ANG family deployed simultaneously: Sniders’ support 779th EAS

    The term ‘beans and bullets’ was started in the civil war, a time where fathers and sons served together side-by-side. Beans, as in coffee beans, and bullets where items supplied to support the frontlines, similar to the mission here at Ali Al Salem Air Base. For one Illinois family, the tradition still stays true, keeping the Air National Guard flying mission part of their legacy and supplying the frontlines with expeditionary airlift support.
