AMC’s Red Flag Gets a Date

Air Mobility Command will hold the first Mobility Guardian exercise July 30, 2017- Aug. 12, 2017, at JB Lewis-McChord, Wash., the command announced on Monday. The exercise is designed to replace the Mobility Rodeo competition, that was last held in 2011. AMC Commander Gen. Carlton Everhart said the new exercise will focus on joint capabilities involving all types of mobility aircraft, and allied partners. Everhart told Air Force Magazine in February that he wants the exercise to be AMC’s version of Red Flag, where mobility aircraft will be the featured aspect of training, instead of supporting other aircraft.
