The 179th Airlift Wing celebrated "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" on Thursday. Children of 179th Airlift Wing employees were invited to come out experience what their parents do on a daily basis as part of the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Foundation's 21st Anniversary.

Theme for 2014 is "Plant a Seed, Grow a Future." The children visited Environmental Management, Security Forces, tried on night vision helmets, watched a flag folding display, tried on chemical gear.

179th Wing Commander, Col. Gary McCue, and his daughters Carly, Zoe and Josie McCue participated in the event. The children also walked through a tent city, toured a C130 and watched a demonstration of a medical training man. They also enjoyed a luncheon with their parents.
