Benjamin, 23, serves as an Air Force senior airman and provides logistical support at Bagram Air Field.
His father Carl, 41, is a chief warrant officer in the Army. After being stationed in Weisbaden, Germany, for two years, he now works as the personal security agent for Major General Richard Kaiser, the commander of Combined Security Transition Command.
“Before Benjamin and I met up in February, it had been two years since I had seen him because I was stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany, and he was at Hill Air Force Base in Utah,” Carl told Stars and Stripes. “So it was good to catch up — a little emotional, not only to see him after two years but to see him here in Afghanistan.”
