Over 200 Citizen Airmen from the 932nd Airlift Wing at Scott Air Force Base will be participating in a flyaway training exercise in early February in two separate training locations in Florida--Patrick Space Force Base and Jacksonville Naval Air Station.

The exercise, designed to enhance the Airmen’s readiness and career field knowledge, will give the Airmen an opportunity to hone their skills and work together as a team with counterparts from another unit. 

"Operation Joint Endeavor training exercise is a vital part of our training program," said Master Sgt. Adam Pollow, 932nd AW Inspector General Operation Joint Endeavour exercise planner.  "It enhances the readiness of our Airmen by enabling them to experience the stresses of real-world contingency operations and to apply their skillsets in those contested environments."

932nd AW Airmen working alongside Reservists from Patrick Space Force Base will be participating in a variety of training activities, including medical support, tactical casualty combat care (TCCC), security forces, combat skills, force support, and logistics operations.

Another group from the 932nd Maintenance Group will be training at Jacksonville Naval Air Station, where the maintenance technical training school on the C-40 aircraft is conducted. 

This flyaway training exercise is one of many that the 932nd AW conducts throughout the year to ensure its Airmen are ready to serve when called upon. The wing's participation in this exercise is a testament to its commitment to readiness and its dedication to serving the nation.

The 932nd AW is a reserve unit that provides a wide range of support to the active-duty Air Force. Its Citizen Airmen serve as an integral part of the total force and are often called upon to support operations around the world. The wing's motto is “Vincere docta” – “Trained to Win.”
