To Kandahar with care

Members of the 188th Fighter Wing, based in Fort Smith, Ark., and the 175th Fighter Wing, based in Baltimore, Md., play Wiffle Ball at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan Feb. 27, 2010, during off-duty hours. The sports items were delivered to the base to help boost morale. Sarah Butler-Thorne raised more than $2,000 to help purchase the products. Butler-Thorne is the wife of Tech. Sgt. Shawn Thorne, a crew chief with the 188th. The 188th deployed 50 members to Kandahar Jan. 4 as part of an Aerospace Expeditionary Force rotation. The 188th will deploy approximately 250 additional Guardsmen in early March, when the unit's official rotation begins. (Photo by Tech. Sgt. Shawn Thorne/188th Fighter Wing)
