KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- When snow fell at Kunsan Dec. 28, the 8th Civil Engineer Squadron immediately kicked into high gear to make sure the base stayed operational.

At the top of their snow removal list was the flightline. They went to work with snow plows and snow blowers to make sure the base's F-16 Fighting Falcons could take off when needed.
