Chief Master Sgt. Mike Cumberland, 58th Airlift Squadron superintendent, checks identification cards as an entry controller at the Main Gate as a part of the Defender for a Day program, May 11. Checking I.D.s and being the first line of defense to Altus AFB are a few of the many responsibilities of an entry controller. Cumberland was appreciative for the opportunity to work as a defender.
