Can’t beat great field trips

Master Sgt. John Shankle, a flight line expediter assigned to the 917th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, poses for a photo in front of an A-10 Thunderbolt II with a group of 7th Graders, at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Oct. 23, 2012. The students who are from McLeod, Texas, attend McLeod Middle School and were touring the base as part of a field trip. Many of the 44 students were unaware there was a military base in Bossier City. The students also toured a 307th Bomb Wing B-52 Stratofortress and the Military Working Dog Training Facility here. They also visited the Barksdale Global Power Museum.
