Video by Senior Airman Jael Laborn
Three heavy cargo pallets are dropped from a C-17 Globemaster in support of ground operations. Joint Operational Access Exercise 13-3 is a seven-day integrated effort between the 82nd Airborne Division and its Air Force partners. JOAX synchronizes the planning and execution of a large-scale forcible entry into a hostile area; securing sufficient freedom of movement while facing anti-access and area-denial capabilities of our enemy. This unified training brings together two Infantry Brigade Combat Teams, six Air Force Air Wings, support elements from Fires and Aviation Brigades and other enablers along with the Division headquarters in order to prove the force multiplying value of joint operations.
