Deployed Airmen Share Y-Cord Launch
Staff Sgt. Chad Gaffney, a crew chief deployed with the 176th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Unit and Senior Airman Molly Hermanson, an administrative journeyman for the 115th Fighter Wing, prepare an F-16 Fighting Falcon for launch at Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, Sept. 19, 2017. Hermanson was able to assist through a Y-cord attached to her headset that allowed her to walk through the launch alongside Gaffney. Airmen from the 115th Fighter Wing, Wisconsin Air National Guard, are deployed to Kunsan for a 3-month rotation as part of a Theater Security Package, which helps to maintain a deterrent against threats to regional security and stability.
