Thema Bentley, a 446th Maintenance Squadron fuel systems technician, thanking her civilian employer for supporting her military service Oct. 3, 2020, on the flight line at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. Traditionally, the 446th AW would host a Boss Flight for civilian employer appreciation each year, but due to the pandemic, Public Affairs instead filmed short thank-you videos to send to the Reserve Citizen Airmen's civilian employers to show they appreciate their support.
