Matthew Parent, both assigned to the South Carolina Air National Guard’s 169th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, take a selfie with visitors to the Colombian Air Force’s Feria Aeronautica Internaccional – Colombia in Rionegro, July 15, 2017. The South Carolina Air National Guard is supporting its State Partner with providing two F-16s to the air show at Rionegro, Antioquia, Colombia from July 13-16, 2017. The United States military participation in the air show provides an opportunity to strengthen our military-to-military relationships with regional partners and provides the opportunity to meet with Colombian air force counterparts. The South Carolina National Guard has been paired with Colombia through the National Guard’s State Partnership Program since 2012. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Capt. Stephen D. Hudson).
