    U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jaycel Bench, an advanced fighter aircraft integrated avionics specialist with the 232nd Operations Squadron, Nevada Air National Guard, poses for a photo with the MQ-9 Reaper remotely piloted aircraft at the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center in Alpena, Mich., July 23, 2019. Bench served on the team that enabled the aircraft’s participation in Northern Strike 19 for the first time in the combat exercise’s history.

    Northern Strike 19 is a National Guard Bureau-sponsored exercise uniting service members from more than 20 states, multiple service branches and numerous coalition countries during the last two weeks of July 2019 at the Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center and the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center, both located in northern Michigan and operated by the Michigan National Guard. The accredited Joint National Training Capability exercise demonstrates the Michigan National Guard’s ability to provide accessible, readiness-building opportunities for military units from all service branches to achieve and sustain proficiency in conducting mission command, air, sea and ground maneuver integration, together with the synchronization of fires in a joint, multinational, decisive action environment.
