Colonels Shawn Fairhurst, 45th Space Wing vice commander, Daniel Gottrich, 45th SW chief of safety,Shannon Klug, 45th Weather Squadron commander, pose with one of their high school's yearbook and the inserted photos in the graphic show photos of them as students of James W. Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax, Va., in the late 1980s. Fairhurst’s senior photo is in Klug’s 1986 yearbook where she was featured as a junior. She graduated in 1987 and Gottrich graduated in 1988. The yearbook pages prove the three former Robinson Rams who were once strangers are now Air Force Wingmen, leading extraordinary missions from the nation’s gateway to space.(U.S. Air Force photo by Matthew Jurgens/released)
