After each combat mission, A-10 Thunderbolt II crew chief Staff Sgt. Damon Ballard checks his "hog" to ensure it's good to go for its next mission from Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. He deployed to the 455th Expeditionary Maintenance Squadron with the 81st Aircraft Maintenance Unit, Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Demetrius Lester)
