Sheppard will discuss the major contributions by service members in support of the National Science Foundation's efforts in Antarctica. The 13th Air Force-led Joint Task Force, aligned under the U.S. Pacific Command, is responsible for the coordination of strategic airlift, field support airlift, emergency response and aeromedical evacuation. They also are tasked with sealift duties, seaport access, bulk fuel supply, port cargo handling and other transportation related requirements conducted in what is considered by many to be one of the most difficult peacetime duty assignments.
