U.S. Air Force Maj. Jonathan Taylor, 44th Fighter Squadron assistant director of operations, is welcomed back from a deployment by his family Oct. 3, 2020, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. While deployed to the U.S. Central Command area of operations, Airmen conducted more than 1,000 sorties and 5,300 combat hours, which drove 13 phase inspections in six months. They’ll now share the skills they learned in combat with Team Kadena, joint partners and allies to ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Benjamin Sutton)
