Logisticians and engineers throughout the Department of Defense converged at the U.S. Central Command Forward Headquarters to attend the Joint Logistics Coordination Board conference here May 6-10, 2018. The board is held semi-annually as a means to focus attention on how to provide engineering expertise and logistical support to military operations, including Operations Inherent Resolve and Resolute Support. With 20 nations that fall within CENTCOM’s area of responsibility, identifying how best to fund, purchase, package and move massive amounts of materials to austere locations is a challenge that requires synchronized efforts from all branches of the armed services.

The MQ-1 served as a premier Remotely Piloted Aircraft for combatant commanders and coalition partners for more than 20 years and is scheduled to officially retire March 9, 2018, at Creech AFB. Sun setting the MQ-1 Predator: MQ-9 Reaper meets demand
With the retirement of the MQ-1 Predator on the horizon, MQ-9 Reapers were successfully transferred via flight from one combat operation to another within the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility for the first time. In January, Airmen facilitated the flight of MQ-9s from Operation Inherent Resolve to Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. This innovative approach took less than 10 percent of the normal time it takes to disassemble, box and ship Remotely Piloted Aircraft via airlift from one theater to another, which allowed warfighters to stay ahead of the pace of modern warfare. As aircrews seamlessly continue to provide dominant, persistent attack and reconnaissance capabilities to meet war front demands from the MQ-9, MQ-1s enter the transition phase out of active inventory.

As MQ-1 Predators phase out, the Air Force’s newest Block 5 MQ-9 Reapers are assuming responsibilities in combat areas to satisfy the need for uninterrupted persistent attack and reconnaissance capabilities. Upgraded MQ-9s continue to deploy downrange
As MQ-1 Predators transition from the Air Force’s active-duty aircraft inventory, they are being replaced downrange by the newly upgraded “Block 5” MQ-9 Reapers. This enables combatant commanders’ uninterrupted persistent attack and reconnaissance capabilities. The recent upgrades include updated software and increased flight range. Airmen at Creech AFB are working to make the transition a smooth one as they continue overseeing the shipment process for a total of 16 Block 5s which will be delivered to various areas of responsibility.

Kin) The unbroken bond: Military working dogs defend coalition, secure base borderline
Dogs are considered man’s best friend. They have been human companions for hundreds of years – and that’s bond that remains unbroken. Military working dogs are among the unsung heroes of the military and play an important role from therapy dogs supporting service members and veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder to military working dogs supporting operations on and off the battlefield. In the Air Force, their natural skills directly augment members serving in Security Forces Squadrons around the world.
