Staff Sgt. Sean Nelson, a 455th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron crew chief, lowers himself off the roof of an EC-130 Compass Call Jan. 18, 2017, at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. The aircraft’s communications jamming capability is an indispensable asset to ground forces and has led to 2,193 terrorists removed from the battlefield since 2014. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.
