93D AGOW FSOC DEBRIEFE
Teams of Airmen move in and out of cover while under fire. Less than 15 feet from the enemy, one of the Airman’s primary weapons jams. Without hesitation, in one fluid motion, he slings his rifle, draws his pistol and quickly eliminates the threat.
Airmen from various career fields within the 93d Air Ground Operations Wing (AGOW) traveled to Smoky Hill Air National Guard Range, KS, to participate in a course that made techniques like this second nature.
The course was held Aug. 26-31, which incorporated their specific duties as tactical air control party (TACP) members and security forces personnel, and built on their gunfighting skills.
“The full spectrum operator course bridges the gap between the traditional combat arms instructor training (CATM) and what they’re going to face downrange facing off with enemy combatants,” said Master Sgt. Joe Aton, 93d AGOW joint terminal attack controller (JTAC) program superintendent. “Traditional CATM shooting is shooting at paper (from various positions) while this course will prepare guys for what they’re going to see in real combat.”
