While it might be easy to attribute the successes of past and present United States Air Force air campaigns to the Airmen who fly the planes, it would be a mistake to overlook a select group of men and women without whom the pilots would never receive a mission tasking. These Airmen work in air and space operations centers around the world.

Rhett, Hurlburt Field's resident bird/wildlife aircraft strike hazard dog, chases pigeons off the runway before an aircraft takes off. Rhett works as a part of the 1st Special Operations Wing Groung Safety Office, helping to clear the runways, fields and hangars on base of potential wildlife hazards. With his constant patrolling, the birds, bears, alligators and other wild animals now view him as a predator and usually stay in the wilds surrounding the base. But sometimes, he has to remind them who "owns" the tarmac. (U.S. Air Force photo Tech. Sgt. Kristina Newton) Think Lassie is cool? Check out what Rhett does ...
He has an average build, but his eyes are a deep chocolate brown and his hair is long and wavy.
