Audio: DoDLive First AFRC C-130 Special Missions Conference
Maj. Gen. James T. Rubeor, 22nd Air Force Commander, Lt. Col. Jonathan Talbot from the 403rd Wing, Lt. Col. David Condit from the 302nd Airlift Wing, and Capt. W. Travis Adams, Assistant Chief of Aerial Spray, 757 Airlift Squadron -- all members of the Air Force Reserve Special Missions Command, participated in a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable on Jan. 13. The Air Force Reserve Command contributes 100 percent of the U.S. Air Forces Weather Reconnaissance and Aerial Spray capabilities and 25 percent of the Air Forces Modular Airborne Firefighting System capabilities. On January 13 experts from all three of the Air Force Reserve Commands C-130 special missions will convene at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs for the first ever, AFRC C-130 Special Missions conference. All three missions provide significant contributions to our nations Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) missions. The high experience level of its Airmen and the ability to respond to natures fury at a moments notice makes the Air Force Reserve Command an ideal partner in these missions.
