Tech. Sgt. Kevin Wallace, an Air Force combat photojournalist, plays with a baby goat at Combat Outpost Metro, in northern Bala Murghab Valley, Afghanistan, to relieve stress prior to a combat engagement, April 3, 2011. Wallace, a former PMEL calibrator, was part of a 15-man team seizing new land and establishing a new base in the area. Wallace said it was precision Air Force rockets and bombs, made possible by Air Force PMELs, that enabled his team's survival during that mission.
