John Boudreaux is a colonel in the U.S. Air Force. In 2016, he suffered a critical sudden cardiac arrest. He was dead for several minutes. Less than 6% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims survive the trip to the hospital. John's doctors gave him less than 1%. Today, as a group commander at Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico, he bears the scars that remind him for every one of him, there are 99 others buried in the ground.

The sound of tire treads rolling over a smooth driveway was the only sound that could be heard on the street Col. John Boudreaux lived when he and his wife, Susi, pulled up to it. Susi shoved the gear shift to “Park.” She couldn’t do it fast enough, and sat back in the seat for a moment. She collected her thoughts as she closed her eyes and let her head fall back into the headrest. Her mind raced faster than her car could.

. ‘Dirt boyz’ lay foundation for air power
It’s a common, definitely overused saying, but I’m going to say it: the Air Force is a machine, and every unit is a cog. When one fails, the rest struggle to keep the machine running. Every unit is important to the mission. At an Air Force Special Operations Command base, this rings especially true. My job is to highlight these parts of the mission, and connect it back to what makes them so important.

Ari Valdo, 27th Special Operations Security Forces military working dog, sits beside his handler before a demonstration at Cannon Air Force Base, N.M., Aug. 17, 2017.

Paul Little, 27th SOSFS dog handler, as military canines usually maintain their home base throughout their career, he’ll likely continue his adventures at Cannon.
