Mountain star; JBER Airmen keeping it lit
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Steven Andersen, 773d Civil Engineer Squadron electrical shop exterior electric noncommissioned officer in charge, flips on a breaker conducting electricity to the brightly lit star on the side of Mount Gordon Lyon at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Nov. 23, 2018. Despite the unforeseeable weather conditions and possible challenges Airmen may face carrying out the JBER tradition, the lighting of the star during the holiday season always happens the Friday after Thanksgiving.
