Tech. Sgt. Hector Garcia, a maintainer with the 113th Wing’s Aerospace Control Alert (ACA) Detachment, ran to the aircraft hangar and assisted in raising the bay doors to get the F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft airborne in a moment’s notice after a real-world red alarm scramble alerted the ACA team on March 14. The D.C. Air National Guard’s ACA Detachment reached a milestone of responding to 5,000 alert events on March 21. (Air National Guard photo by Master Sgt. Becky Vanshur)
