127th CES in Ghana, Africa

Senior Airman Kevin Burch and Sgt. Pete Skirpan are served breakfast by local workers during a deployment to Accra, Ghana, April 10, 2010. Burch and Skirpan, members of the 127th Civil Engineering Squadron, Michigan Air National Guard, were deployed to Ghana as part of a construction team. The detachment is working on doing major renovations to a technical training building at the Akota air base in Ghana, along with a team from the North Dakota Air National Guard. North Dakota and Ghana are partners in the National Guard’s State Partnership program, in which state National Guards partner with emerging nations. Michigan recently became partners with Liberia, which borders Ghana in western Africa. (U.S. Air Force photo by MSgt Terry Atwell)
