Hello, fans and friends, welcome to the October 2020 edition of Davis-Monthan AFB Desert Lightning News! Davis-Monthan’s 55th Rescue Squadron and a combat systems operator from the 79th RQS executed a long-range mission in late August, rescuing an injured mariner from a cargo ship off the California coast. “D-M is always ready to go,” said Maj. Brendan Sullivan, 55th RQS pilot. “We’re always ready to answer the call for any type of mission we get.” Near or far, our Airmen are prepared to answer the call!
