U.S. Army soldiers with 1-1st Special Forces Group (SFG) descend from a KC-130J Hercules with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron (VMGR) 152 during air delivery training for a static line jumpmaster course at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, August 22, 2017. The air delivery was part of unit-level training Evergreen. Air delivery offers the ability to maximize the number of personnel and equipment rapidly delivered to a forward location, with little or no ground support in the objective area. Evergreen will serve as VMGR-152’s 2017 Marine Corps Combat Readiness Evaluation through tri-lateral training with the U.S. Army 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment and the 1st SFG to gain valuable insight on the most recent Operation Inherent Resolve assault-support tactics.
