Two brave Airman are proving once again why they are heroes!
The lives of a family of four and their three pets were in danger as their Dix, Nebraska home burned in flames this past Thursday at 9:30 at night.
Airmen 1st Class Christopher Horton and Christian Reid of the 790th Missile Security Forces Squadron from F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming spotted the home on fire while on duty. A neighbor contacted the fire department at the request of the two airmen.
The family of four and their three pets all escaped safely. The firefighter put out the fire while the airmen happily insisted on helping. The two airmen helped control a hydrant while the firefighters fought the flames to nonexistence.
The airmen gave the family $40 out of their own pockets to help with expenses, according to KTWO Radio in Casper.
“Hats off to our great Air Force Airmen here in Kimball County,” the sheriff’s office posted on its Facebook page. Besides protecting our freedom and the nuclear weapons in the county, they help keep us safe."
It's so great the two airmen were on duty in the area. They also comforted the family during this devastating moment. Thankfully, everyone was safe.
