Additionally, as one of only two operational support flyers, Sergeant Bellamy trained three Public Affairs specialists on aerial documentation, completing 80 flight hours and providing Air Force leadership with relevant imagery of operational objectives. Further, while deployed in support of the Nato Special Operations Component Command, she documented a hostage recovery mission where 15 prisoners of war were freed and captured images that positively influenced public opinion. Finally, Sergeant Bellamy ensured accurate Special Tactics portrayal for the Air Force Recruiting Service's $1.5 million dollar 4-D Special Tactics experience, which resulted in over 10,000 recruiting leads per year for the Special Operations community. The distinctive accomplishments of Staff Sergeant Bellamy reflect credit upon herself, the 1st Special Operations Wing, and the United States Air Force.
