Watchful eye from above

Watching you, watching me, watching the wing at work? The 932nd Airlift Wing was watched over January 3, 2016, by an extra set of eyes, as the unit reopened after the New Years federal holiday. This North American opossum decided to climb the tree next to the 932nd flag pole, very near the sidewalk to the headquarters building. Once up there, he couldn't quite seem to decide how to come back down, much like a cat stuck in a tree. Some people walking past thought he was dead, but he was only pretending, and moved his head slightly when spoken to. An animal specialist was dispatched and carefully moved the frightened fellow to a safer location near the lake and woods, to roam freely again. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col. Stan Paregien)
