Slideshow–Air Force trains with Army

Airmen of the 25th Air Support Operations Squadron participated in combat operations and scenarios with U.S. Army Soldiers at Wheeler Army Airfield, Hawaii. This field training helps build skills that allow the two forces to integrate more efficiently on the battlefield. Tactical Air Control Party Airmen (TACPs) drill heavily in these operations to keep their skills honed.

Tech. Sgt. Cohen Young a Photojournalist with the Defense Media Activity/Hawaii took the photos and captured the sounds and voices of the field operations.
