McEntire Operation Rita Exercise
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jeffrey Towe, 169th Security Forces Squadron Air National Guard, scans his sectors as his team responds to a simulated insurgent group posing a threat to local aircraft during Operation Rita, a joint exercise, at McEntire Joint National Guard Base, S.C., Feb. 2, 2012. The 169th SFS Airmen were transported by S.C. Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawks to a destination near alleged group activity to begin a simulated reconnaissance mission. Operation Rita gave security forces the chance to become familiar with Army aviation, including loading and unloading from active helicopters.
