Senior Airman James McMillan runs through a spot and defects check on a pair of night vision goggles Sept. 1, 2010, on Joint Base Charleston, S.C. Checking for defects and spots in the NVGs is just as important as making sure they function in low-light situations. Spots and defects could lead to falsely identifying a target or missing a target putting the user in harms way. Night vision devices were first used in World War II and came into wide use during the Vietnam War. Airman McMillan is a NVG technician with the 437th Operations Support Squadron.
