BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan: Army Staff Sergeant Danny Castleberry and Buddy receive an A-10 orientation from the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing. Members of the 455th AEW recently hosted soldiers from the 67th Engineer Detachment K-9 unit. Sergeant Castleberry is a member of the 67th Engineer Detachment deployed here from Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. He and his team are responsible for expediting the minefield clearance operations by detecting explosives during area and route clearance and minefield extraction (casualty extraction.) We see the A-10s flying, we hear them at a distance but we have never had the opportunity to be this close to one before, this is a great experience, said Sergeant Castleberry while Buddy wagged in delight. Castleberry and his partner Buddy have been working together for two years. (Photo by U. S. Air Force Capt. Mark D. Gibson, 455th Air Expeditionary Wing Public Affairs.)
