IN RETROSPECT 2007: A collective look at Team March's missions over the year

Staff Sgt. Winston Demmin, 729th Airlift Squadron Crew Chief, befriends the son of Dennis Dennebouy, president of the Picauville Historical Society, Picauville, France, in June during a mission there. On the day of the crew’s departure, nearly the entire town came to the airport to see them off. According to other 729th troops, the young boy was “so enamored with Sergeant Winston that he begged our gentle giant to hold him for a picture.” The boy had his father make him an American flight suit for the occasion, complete with U.S. flag and wings, saying that when he grows up he “wants to be an American pilot.” (U.S. Air Force photo)
