Oregon Air National Guard Staff Sgt. William Briones stands at attention with his fellow Airmen of the 173rd Security Forces Squadron during a demobilization ceremony, July 21, recognizing 26 Airmen from the 173 Fighter Wing Security Forces who recently deployed to Afghanistan for six months.

The deployment was unique for the Security Forces Airmen. They spent the majority of their time working outside the wire ensuring the security and safety of Coalition Forces--a first for deployed security forces from Kingsley Field, Klamath Falls, Ore.
