A mother and daughter from East Tennessee are in the middle of a six month tour together almost seven thousand miles away from their Bean Station home on a U.S. Air Force base in Manas, Kyrgyzstan.
"She's a good wingman and I'm her wingman. We always have someone," said Tech Sergeant Terri Gill about her daughter, Senior Airman Audrey Gill.
Mom does outrank daughter, but Terri told us in an interview via Skype that not many people can believe the mother and daughter duo volunteered to serve together.
"Their mouths drop. They're amazed that a mom and a daughter get along for six months...they're like 'I couldn't do it,'" said Tech Sergeant Gill.
The pair live in separate quarters. They also work separate shifts but they often have dinner together and neither can stand the winter weather that is seeing temperatures in the single digits.
"And this week is my week to shovel snow," said Senior Airman Audrey Gill who was celebrating her 22nd birthday on the afternoon we talked about serving with her mom.
"The worst part is she knows every move if I make a mistake she's like 'hey, you did this,'" Audrey says with a smile.
The two have deployed together before. Two years ago they spent six months on duty in Kuwait. They are due back home to East Tennessee in April.
