U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Riley Odom-Davidson (center), 270th Air Traffic Control Squadron, listens as Brig. Gen. James Kriesel, the Oregon National Guard commander, describes a visit he made to these troops during their deployment to Al Asad Air Base in Iraq. Odom-Davidson has a hint of a smile on his face as Kriesel describes one member’s nickname “Air Conditioner Man”, whose civilian HVAC employment proved quite useful allowing him to fix broken units all across the air base during his free time.
