Camp offers children taste of deployed life

Airman 1st Class Ashley Cooke, 31st Force Support Squadron services journeyman, hands a simulated troop her breakfast at the the La Dolce dining facility during the deployment camp at Aviano Air Base, Italy, Nov. 18. The base hosted a 2-day mock deployment camp for a group of 9 to 15-year-old kids to give them the feel of what their military family members go through during a deployment. More than 40 children participated in several different events from learning how to march to completing an obstacle course. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Matthew Lotz)
