Air Force Special Tactics

A group of Special Tactics operators helped clean the Destin Marina while getting a bit of training last week.

And the result was nearly two tons of garbage hauled out of the Destin habor.

The dive is a regular community service project the Special Tactics Team started about three years ago, said Michael Gray, unit diving officer.

“Boaters were getting tangled (in the debris) and since we train to work in bad conditions, we thought ‘why don’t we help clean it?’” he added.

Twenty Special Tactics Airmen completed their 830-mile ruck march to honor the fallen Monday morning at Hurlburt Field.

The ruck marchers were met with cheers, salutes and American flags as they walked through the base entrance. Gold star families were waiting to give hugs while holding photos of their lost loved ones.
