Capt. Julien Adams, a B-1 Lancer weapon systems officer assigned to the 34th Bomb Squadron at Ellsworth Air Force Base, S.D., and Capt.

Capt. Julien and Daniel Adams have a lot in common. They both have dark, short-cropped hair, love Korean food, and are alumni of the same university; however, the similarities don’t stop there. In fact, if surrounded by people who didn’t know them very well, the two could easily swap places for the day with nobody being the wiser – a fun perk of having an identical twin. In the Air Force, they are barely even separated by the airframes they fly on – bomber jets.

On the other side of the base, Airmen sprint across the Pride Hangar soccer field in an attempt to score a last minute goal.
