U.S. Air Force Col. Bryony A. Terrell, 145th Airlift Wing commander (left), Lt. Col. Lisa Kirk, 145th Mission Support Group commander (center), and Lt. Col. Karen Shook, 145th Maintenance Group commander (right), pose together after being pied in the face for a fundraising event following a ‘Living’ My Best Life’ Color Race, held at the North Carolina Air National Guard (NCANG) Base, Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Nov. 3, 2018. The Color Run, put together by the NCANG Recruiting Office, honors recently deceased U.S. Air Force Recruiter Master Sgt. Valanda Pettis, following her battle with cancer. Master Sgt. Pettis was believed by many to have a colorful personality and would often be heard singing, ‘Livin’ My Best Life,’ during the good and bad days; a true testament to her strength.
