Senior Airman Robby Puentes, 341st Civil Engineer Squadron structural journeyman, practices vertical stick welding at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., Jan. 10, 2023. Malmstrom AFB is unique in that it is one of two Air Force installations that offer civilian and military personnel the opportunity to earn their 1G, 3G and 6G welding certifications--all of which are accepted by the American Welding Society.
