KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan, Aug. 6, 2012 – With each sortie that Air Force Lt. Col. Michael Rose flies over Afghanistan, he adds to his family’s rich history. As an F-16 pilot assigned to the 157th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron here, he is the third member of his family to fly in combat for the Air Force. His father and grandfather also flew Air Force combat missions.
