Staff Sgt. Christopher Parise, 576th Flight Test Squadron missile handling evaluator, reads a letter near Wall Beach Oct. 24, 2019, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. Carla Freeman wrote Parise the letter to thank him for saving the life of her husband Al Freeman, a Vietnam veteran. In the letter, Carla explained that Al has Parkinson’s disease and had been feeling depressed lately. She was uncertain as to why Al chose to go out in the ocean that evening, but if it wasn’t for Parise, she would have lost the love of her life, and for that, she expressed her full gratitude.
