Pilot for a Day

Eight-year-old Larry Ronstadt hugs Sparky the Dog after his tour of the base Fire Department as part of the Pilot for a Day program at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., Oct 25, 2012. Larry was diagnosed with leukemia in December 2012. The program provides children with a terminal illness a day to visit the base and become an honorary pilot for one of the operational squadrons. Sparky was played by U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class James Mullenix, who is a firefighter with the base Fire Department. (U.S. Air Force photo by 1LT Susan Harrington/released)
