Steve Nordquist, a member of the 49th Logistic Readiness Squadron, sands paint off of the side of an R-11 fuel truck April 30. Damage to the side of this truck warranted the need for a new coat of paint. Before the side of the truck was refaced, they removed the remaining paint to leave a smooth surface. It was then placed inside a large facility that helps protect the environment and the painter from chemicals that are used in the process. Keeping the correct identifying marks clearly visible at all times ensures that safety standards are met, while having workers informed of the correct use for each vehicle.
