Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - July 10, 2020

Greetings, everyone, and welcome to the July 10th edition of Nellis & Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! Nellis AFB played an important support role for the historic launch of the SpaceX Demonstration Mission 2 at the end of May. Personnel from the 58th Rescue Squadron’s Guardian Angels supported the Falcon 9 launch, making up part of the three-team Space Flight Support Force.  “Pararescue has been a part of manned space flight since it began in the 1960s,” said Maj. Lucas Gagliardi, 58th RQS, director of operations. “To be included in the first team to bring back some of our heritage was a super humbling and awesome experience.” We are very proud of the Guardian Angels team!
