A helmet bag belonging to U.S. Air Force Col. Kristopher Struve, the 35th Fighter Wing commander, lays on the ground at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Dec. 28, 2018. "Torch" is Struve's callsign, which is a specalized form of nickname that is used as a substitue for the aviators given name. He gave U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. John Alsvig, the 35th FW command chief, a familiarization flight allowing him to see the ins and outs of the functions of the F-16 Fighting Falcon. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. B.A. Chase)
