Lt. Col. Craig Andrle, 79th Fighter Squadron (FS) commander, prepares to embrace his family on the Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., flightline after returning from a deployment May 4, 2017. For the first time since 9/11, the 79th served as the only fighter squadron in theater, and the number of fighter jets available to them dropped from 18 to 12 – a limitation that didn’t stop them from dropping almost double the amount of weapons as previous units.
