What's New

War is an ever-changing enigma the United States military has had to adapt to over time. Since the American Revolution, the U.S. has modified its tactics to defeat its adversaries. The Air Force is continuing this tradition of enhancing its warfighting capabilities with the Combat Support Wing exercise. The CSW provides multifunctional training for Airmen to rapidly deploy in smaller, more efficient and agile teams, effectively creating a smaller footprint in dangerous or non-permissive areas. Simultaneously, they provide the same security and mission effectiveness as a larger unit.

Every day, pilots and weapons system officers fly in dangerous skies over uncontrolled territory. With every flight comes a risk that the aircraft will go down, and the aircrew will have to rely on their survival, evasion, resistance and escape training. Pilots and WSOs need to refresh their combat survival and water survival training to fortify their skills, and to learn about the newest technology and methods available. At Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, the training is conducted by Tech. Sgt. Joshua Krape, 4th Operations Support Squadron SERE specialist. Being a lone instructor, Krape relies on his SERE augmentee group, part of the Make It Better club initiative, to help him properly train the aircrew quickly and efficiently.
