Air Commandos, families and friends perform memorial push-ups following a building dedication ceremony at Hurlburt Field, Florida, on June 21, 2019. The Special Tactics Training Squadron annex building, which formerly housed the 10th Combat Weather Squadron preceding its inactivation in May of 2014, was dedicated to U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. William “Bill” Schroeder. Colonel Schroeder, a Special Operations weather officer and commander of the 342nd Training Squadron, Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, was fatally wounded when he placed himself between an armed individual and members of his squadron, allowing them to escape unharmed, in April of 2016.
