Firefighter of the USAF
U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Adam Cardona, a 35th Civil Engineer Squadron fire protection journeyman, pauses for a photo at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Aug. 7, 2019. The Dallas, Texas, native attended firefighter training for three months prior to receiving orders to his first base, Misawa AB, which resulted in him feeling anxious, but he found solace through the welcoming embrace of local American and Japanese community members.
