An early morning run through the desert is just one of the ways security forces troops keep in shape at Edwards AFB, California. AIRMAN Magazine's article High-desert Hideaway by MASTER Sergeant Louis Arana-Barradas describes life on the desert base by Air Force members stationed there. The base has made major improvements in quality life issues such as housing, gymnasium, restaurants, off-duty education opportunities and recreation. (AIRMAN Magazine/July 1999)
