Corralez deployed to Sultan Air Base

Air Force Staff Sgt. Christopher P. Corralez has deployed to Prince Sultan Air Base, Saudi Arabia, to support the mission of Operation Southern Watch.

The operation is a multinational coalition force that conducts flying missions to ensure and enforce Iraq's compliance with the United Nations (UN) Security Council resolutions enacted after the end of the Persian Gulf War in 1991. The resolutions prohibit Iraqi military flights over the no-fly zone and ground troop movements through the no-drive zone in the southern half of Iraq.

Corralez is an armament weapons systems technician (craftsman) with the 363rd Equipment Maintenance Squadron.

He is the son of Paul R. Corralez of Pecos and Betty E. Florez of San Antonio.

His wife, Adelina, is the daughter of Mario Sanchez and Connie Ruiz of Kermit.

The staff sergeant graduated in 1995 from Pecos High School, and received an associates degree in 2001 from the Community College of the Air Force.
