AFRC deployed families dinner

HICKAM AIR FORCE BASE, Hawaii – Randy Higa helps 18-month-old Kaianna play putt-putt golf at the monthly Airman and Family Readiness Center Deployed Families Dinner here April 22. Kaianna’s mother, Senior Airman Sheena Higa, is deployed for the first time for six months to Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, from Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., where she is working as a medical administrator at a prison there. Kaianna’s grandparents, Randy and Angie, are her care givers in her mother’s absence. Although they live in Hawaii, as Kaianna’s guardians they were able to use agent cards to take advantage of the Air Force’s benefits to deployed families at Hickam AFB. Mrs. Higa said they really enjoy coming on base and receiving support from agencies like the AFRC. The monthly Deployed Families Dinner is open to families of those who are soon to be deployed, currently deployed, or recently returned from deployment. For more information on AFRC benefits to military families, call Maria Barrows at 449-0300. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Carolyn Viss)
