Prepping for the Patriot Warrior mission

At Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, the 932nd Airlift Wing's Operations Group and Maintenance Group prepared early in the morning to fly multiple legs of transportation, and ensure 932nd Medical Group personnel made their arrival times at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin. They took off on this C-40 aircraft on August 9, 2017 to reach their final destination, participating in Patriot Warrior. The two week event is an Air Force Reserve training exercise, designed to enhance wartime skills in a deployment-style environment and evaluate the ability of units to deploy mobility airlift and agile combat support capabilities in support of joint theater operations. Several 932nd AW ivil engineers, explosive ordnance experts, and firefighters went, along with other medical Airmen who left on later flights the same day. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col.
