U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Axel Fiksman, a structures specialist with the 116th Civil Engineering Squadron (CES), Georgia Air National Guard (ANG), Robins Air Force Base, Ga., welds a cross bar onto a pole while building a fence at Silver Flag training at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla., April 17, 2014. During the weeklong course, Guardsmen from the 116th CES along with 219 Airmen from multiple U.S. Air Force active duty, Reserve and ANG units trained on building and maintaining bare-base operations at a simulated forward-deployed location. In addition, they honed their combat and survival skills, repaired simulated bomb-damaged runways, practiced EOD scenarios, set up base facilities and established various critical base operating support capabilities. Thirty-four Airmen from the 116th CES attended the exercise that consisted of extensive classroom and hands-on training culminating in an evaluation of learned skills on the last day of class.
