Airman 1st Class Erick Requadt, 23d Wing photojournalist, simulates a field sobriety test, July 7, 2017, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga.

Airman A epitomized what every stellar Airman should be. He passed every test with flying colors, volunteered during his free time, and went above and beyond during his everyday job. He had just received Senior Airman below-the-zone, a promotion given six months early, and went out to celebrate. Before he knew it, red and blue lights were flashing behind him. Through blurry eyes, he attempted to walk in a straight line and blow through a breathalyzer, the number flashing back was beyond the legal limit. Airman A had thought he was fine after the few drinks he had that night but he quickly learned what those drinks would really cost him.

Although separated by miles, their relationship remained close as his older cousin continued to guide him. Now, they have returned to each other’s side, both stationed at Moody, providing them with a unique opportunity.

Col. Michael Thompson, 71st RQS director of operations. “We planned and executed together as a cohesive rescue team. “We were on alert 24/7 to ensure that if there is ever an Airman, Sailor, Marine, or Soldier who is isolated, we are prepared to return them to friendly control,” added Thompson.
