You go, girls!

On Saturday, April 30, Team DME, consisting of several You Go, Girls; faculty members; and school friends took to the streets in the Providence Women's Heart and Sole race in Columbia to help raise awareness for women's heart disease, the number one killer of females in South Carolina. Some of them completed the five mile walk or run, while others opted for the 3 mile walk or run. No matter the distance, though, one thing is for sure... all had a fantastic time completing this heart-healthy event in our community. In the picture, You Go, Girl team members ...

The ramp

The C-130 was parked on the tarmac, her rear door open, yawning in the afternoon sun. The small, relatively quiet corner of the runway in which she was parked stood in contrast to the hustle and bustle of the surrounding airfield. The base, elsewhere, was alive with activity. This made perfect sense given that this was a warzone; schedules had to be kept, deadlines had to be met, missions had to be completed. Her crew had dispersed, but she remained, alone and waiting.
