300 airmen and women were deployed from Ellsworth Air Force Base on Saturday. Everyone already said their goodbyes to their families and friends. So I only photographed the airmen and women waiting for the word to board the plane. They waited for hours. I thought it was really interesting how most airmen and women spent this time talking on their cell phones.
