Audio: Vehicle Maintenance Airman (RADIO)
Audio by Staff Sgt. Jessica Wolter
Troops in Afghanistan drive outside the wire in Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicles every day but they can’t do it if those vehicles don’t run. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jessica King highlights an Airman at Bagram Air Field who plays an often unappreciated but necessary role in the counterinsurgency fight. There is a sound bite by Airman 1st Class Tracey Branch, Vehicle Maintainer, 455th Expeditionary Logistical Readiness Squadron whose hometown is Norfolk, Va.
