The Air Force can’t fly in support of US operations around the world if the aircraft are not mission capable. The men and women of the 332nd Expeditionary Maintenance Group go above and beyond, working around the clock to make sure the Air Force’s F-15E Strike Eagles stay in the skies in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.
