Sumter Today: Shaw welcomes new airmen to its Reaper unit

Posted

For today's show, we're heading to Shaw Air Force Base for an activation ceremony for the 25th Attack Group. The airmen in this group pilot MQ-9 Reapers, or remotely piloted aircraft, all over the world to protect American and allied forces on the ground. The first airmen in the squadron got here on in February, and there's a specific reason why they're all volunteers in coming to Sumter.
