There’s a room tucked away in the corner of a building at Bagram Airfield, where the ‘eyes and ears of the commander’ lives. The room features ample desk space, a few computer monitors, and binders full of checklists. When the phone rings, a command and control specialist picks up. This time it’s a C-130 requesting refueling upon landing. The ground coordination immediately begins as the command and control specialist systematically executes the steps outlined by her checklists to fulfill the request.
