403rd Wing Exercise: Operation Southern Comfort
Reserve Citizen Airmen from the 403rd Wing put their military training to the test during an enhanced training exercise called Operation Southern Comfort Jan 13-16, 2020, which took place at the Mississippi National Guard Combat Readiness Training Center, Gulfport, Mississippi and Camp Shelby, Hattiesburg, Mississippi. This training exercise was created with the intent to observe these Airmen perform their job duties in a simulated wartime environment. The Airmen were given tasks that they may encounter to include simulated chemical attacks, threats, air and ground attacks. These "attacks" were designed to see how they react, if they react correctly and how long it takes to react; which determines if they received the proper training and that they understand the training.
