WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. -- Air Force Reservists in the 442nd Fighter Wing conducted their final "dress rehearsal" operational readiness exercise here Sep. 16-20 to prepare for an Air Combat Command operational readiness inspection in October.
During the exercise, 442nd Citizen Airmen simulated deploying to a forward operating base and many of the events and hardships they may face in a real-world situation.
Some of the training events included ground attacks from simulated enemies, donning protective equipment during chemical attacks and performing self aid and buddy care on simulated-wounded Citizen Airmen.
