An Air Force husband and wife on active duty are reenlisting at the same time during a video teleconference while one serves in Iraq and the other in South Carolina.
Tech. Sgt. Audrey Gippe is celebrating the event on Thursday at Shaw Air Force Base near Sumter, while husband Tech. Sgt. Chris Gippe will be at Balad Air Base in Iraq.
The couple's three children, their mother's father and co-workers will be present for the event.
Tech. Sgt. Audrey Gippe says her family is looking forward to seeing her husband. She says she is sure her children, at ages 6, 4 and 15 months, may not understand what it is to serve in the Air Force, but they will remember the ceremony.
