Second Lts. Ranell Cavitt and Maggie Jones, 3rd Space Experimentation Squadron, have been nearly inseparable since they arrived at Schriever Air Force Base, Sept. 30, 2015. They have only been separated professionally for a short time, during training, since their arrival and work closely together as Automated Navigation and Guidance Experiment in Local Space satellite mission planners and trainers. Their shared experience and passion for space and science helped build a friendship and camaraderie that appears like a life-long bond, though the pair met less than two years ago.

The pair sat at the coffee house table and a casual observer might quickly conclude they were lifelong friends. The reality is, though they met less than two years ago, their lives have been following nearly identical paths since that day. And that’s perfectly fine with them.“We came in at the exact same time,” they said simultaneously.Second Lts.

Danne Smith, 50th Civil Engineer Squadron programmer, reflects on his younger days as a UH-1H helicopter pilot in the Vietnam War during an interview at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Friday, March 10, 2017.

Wes Wright) I am SCHRIEVER: Heroes among us
“I survived,” Danne Smith said, deadpanned. “That was my greatest achievement from my Vietnam days.” While it may be hard to argue with that point, Smith’s war record says he did more than just survive -- much more. “For heroism while engaged in aerial flight … gallantry of an exceptional nature … bravely landed aircraft in the midst of fierce fighting … heroic actions in keeping with the highest traditions of military service,” are just snippets of one of Smith’s Air Medals.
