1/27/2011 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- The commander of the 66th Security Forces Squadron will discuss how members of his squadron performed while defending Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, at the next Heritage of Freedom event, Feb. 22 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Minuteman Club ballroom.

Lt. Col. Chris Echols will recount how his deployed Security Forces, serving as members of the 455th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron, fought back an attack in the early morning hours of May 19, 2010, eliminating more than 16 enemy combatants.

Colonel Echols will be joined by Lt. Col. Timothy "Goose" Gosnell, an F-16 pilot who was a member of the 421st Fighter Squadron when stationed at Hill Air Force Base, who will discuss his experiences while deployed to Bagram.

The Heritage of Freedom Speaker Series is a free event that features two or three speakers, each of whom discuss their experiences serving in combat or while deployed. Their hard-hitting 15-20 minute presentations are followed by short question and answer periods. Everyone is welcome at this free, informal event. The Paul Revere Chapter of the Air Force Association will provide free refreshments.
