It's a family affair

MCCHORD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash., -- Three of the 446th Airlift Wing's newest members bear a striking resemblance to each other... and for good reason. They're not only part of the same wing family, they're part of the same family, period. From left are Airman 1st Class Jeremiah Barton, 21, 446th Maintenance Squadron; Airman 1st Class Josiah Barton, 23, 446th Civil Engineer Squadron; and Airman 1st Class Tristan Barton, 28, 446th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. The brothers hail from Ridgefield, Wash., where they work in a family-owned home building company. They enlisted in the Air Force Reserve within two months of each other. The Bartons are adjusting nicely to McChord Air Force Base and their lives as Reservists. "Everything about it's really cool," said Jeremiah. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Grant Saylor)
