The 926th Force Support Squadron participated in a Super Unit Training Assembly, Sept. 12-15, at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada.

During the training event Airmen from across the FSS, along with members from the 820th Red Horse Squadron and 555th Red Horse Squadron, accomplished their expeditionary mission requirements.

Per training standards Airmen must complete hands-on training every 24 months to maintain skill in numerous areas including tent building, Personnel Deployment Function lines, Personnel Support for Contingency Operations, Ability to Survive and Operate, Unit Control Center, and Single Palletized Expeditionary Kitchen familiarization.

“For some Airmen this was the first time they experienced hands-on training on the equipment they would be required to build in the Area of Responsibility,” said Maj. Brandon Lewis, 926th FSS commander.

The 926th FSS plans a follow-on event in April to complete even more practical training.

“We plan to add multiple new training pieces in Fiscal Year 2021 to develop a wider range of skills to support our down range war fighters,” said Lewis.

Reservists ended the SUTA by participating in the 926th Airmen and Family Readiness Center UNITE team building event. A&FR led communication driven activities to help Airmen improve their ability to better communicate with others and improve skills such as listening.
