Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather N. Kolich
Combat-ready airmen defend an Air Force transport aircraft in a desert valley while other airmen offload equipment in the opening scene of this title from the "People of the U.S. Armed Forces" series. Detailed, full-page photographs and spare text take readers through marching exercises during basic training, stand them nose-to-nose with an F-22 Raptor fighter jet, drop them into the cockpit of a C-130 Hercules, and park them in front of a bank of radar-monitoring computer screens in the chapter on Air Force job training. When the work is done, airmen and their families enjoy life on base, and sometimes move from base to base all around the world during their service, which can range from four to 20 years or longer. College or jobs utilizing the skills they learned in the Air Force await airmen when they leave the service to become civilians again. End matter includes a glossary, list of books for further reading, instructions to access a safe, "educator-approved" website for more information on the topic of this book, and an index.
