An appropriate name for a unit in cowboy country. Mountain Home life winds along a country road. It has a key mission, neat homes. Children ride bikes to school. And Airman leadership school troops honor the flag at retreat each day. But it's different, what sets it apart is the special relationship that exists between the town and base community, there's trust.
