Coaches Tour Bags

Tech. Vanessa Chandler and Airman First Class Cody Kittle share a laugh while packing up t-shirts to be handed out during Coaches Tour 2009, a morale-boosting mission designed to bring NCAA football coaches to troops overseas. The two Airmen are assigned to the 22nd Logistics Readiness Squadron and are among the many at McConnell Air Force Base, Kan., preparing for the kickoff of the Tour on May 28. For a second year in a row, tour organizers are counting on a KC-135 Stratotanker from McConnell Air Force Base, Kan., for most of their transportation needs. Capt. Eric Junkins, a Reserve KC-135 pilot assigned to the 931st Air Refueling Group, is the only McConnell Airman assigned to fly this year's Coaches Tour tanker who also was part of the crew who flew last year's mission.
