Wielded by the righteous

In this historic photo, a four-ship of F-15 Eagles, deployed from Eglin, fly over the Persian Gulf. Throughout the 90s, then-named 33rd Tactical Fighter Wing flew combat air patrol and high value airborne asset protection missions as part of Operations DESERT STORM and SOUTHERN WATCH. Known for the most combat kills, the wing "Nomads" ended the operational missions with 16 aerial victories. Today, the wing continues its air dominance by training pilots and maintainers for the military's future generation as DoD's Integrated Training Center for the F-35. (Courtesy photo)
