TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Oklahoma -- TWO TONS. After lifting 225 pounds 18 times, Air Force Reservist A1C Adam Murray had lifted a total of 4050 pounds. That was what it took to win the bench press competition at Kirkuk Regional Air Base, Iraq on May 31, 2008. The contest prize was a weight lifting belt, but the real prize was being the best. A1C Murray is one of the Firefighters from Tinker's 507th Air Refueling Wing's Civil Engineer Squadron deployed to Kirkuk.
