Barksdale welcomes the next generation

6/22/2010 - Capt. Stephen Dzialo, lead coordinator for the JROTC Open House, briefs cadets on the capabilities of the A-10 Thunderbolt II and the B-52 Stratofortress at Barksdale AFB, Louisiana, June 17, 2010. Captain Dzialo is attached to the 2nd Operations Support Squadron at Barksdale AFB. Airmen from over 40 Air Force Specialty Codes (AFSC) at Barksdale were represented during the open house to explain career options to the cadets. An AFSC is an alphanumerical code used by the United States Air Force to identify an Air Force Specialty (AFS) or in layman's term, a type of job or career field. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt.
