William Warwick, center, shows American Idol finalist Jacob Lusk how to operate an F-6A bomb disposal robot July 20 at the 301st Fighter Wing, based at NAS Fort Worth JRB, Texas. Three other finalists from the 2011 season of the show, Paul McDonald, Thia Megia and Maima Adedapo look on. Sergeant Warwick is an Air Force Reserve explosive ordnance disposal expert in the 301st Civil Engineer Squadron. All 11 finalists visited the 301st Fighter Wing to film the public-service announcement and meet with military members and their families at the joint base. (U.S. Air Force photo/Lt. Col.
