Graduates from Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training class 22-08, break their first pair of wings, during their graduation ceremony, Mar. 25, 2022 on Columbus Air Force Base, Miss. During a long-standing aviation tradition, pilots will keep one half of the broken wings and give the second half to a loved one. The two halves are never to be brought back together while the pilot is still alive. (U.S Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Jessica Haynie)
