The 325th Fighter Wing commander learned how the 325th Operation Support Squadron air traffic controller radar approach control watch supervisor does his job Feb. 7.

Col. David Graff, 325th FW commander, went to the RAPCON building where he met with Staff Sgt. Justin Sprayberry, 325th OSS ATC RAPCON watch supervisor, as part of the Airman Shadow Program.

"I think it is important for the commander to have the opportunity to come see some of the other career fields, their impacts to the mission and the local area," Sprayberry said. "I think it will make for an interesting trip. Normally, the ATC tower gets all the glory, so it should be intriguing for him to experience the other side of air traffic."
