    Master Sgt. DeMarious Beard, a U.S. Air Force Reserve electric and environmental technician assigned to the 459th Air Refueling Wing, Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, is removing turbine covers to inspect the engine and blades to ensure aircraft safety prior to a refueling mission during Arctic Challenge Exercise 2021, at Rovaniemi Air Base, Finland, June 14. The exercise is a joint, multinational training event that creates a significant measure of autonomy for European partners and U.S. forces across the European theater to exercise high-intensity and global peer competitor combat scenarios. Participation in reoccurring multinational exercises like ACE 21 enhances our professional relationships and improves overall coordination with allies and partner militaries during times of crisis.
