Travis Air Force Base 2016 Year in Photos
As the sun rises, 60th Air Mobility Wing Airmen from Wing Staff Agencies, run on blue track with a Prisoner of War/Missing in Action batons Sept. 16, 2016, at Travis Air Force Base, Calif. The run honors the nation’s former prisoners of war and those service members who are still missing in action. Travis participants will carry a pair of batons continuously around the track in 15-minute shifts ending Friday afternoon with a ceremony held at the 60 AMW Headquarters. The POW/MIA baton carries a flash drive that contains all known names of all the accounted for POW/MIAs since WWI. At present, more than 83,000 Americans remain missing from WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, and the Gulf Wars/other conflicts.(U.S. Air Force Photo by Heide Couch)
