Mobility Guardian will feature more than 3,000 personnel, including 25 international countries, from July 31 to Aug. 11, 2017, at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington.

“Our ability to move national power to any location is key to the security of the United States,” said Gen. Carlton D. Everhart II, the AMC commander. “Mobility Airmen are often the first to arrive and the last to depart a forward operating location. They provide continuous support to the joint warfighter.”

“We’re creating an exercise that will encompass everything AMC does,” said Lt. Col. Jeremy Wagner, the Mobility Guardian director. “We basically took every skillset from AMC and said, ‘What would the ideal exercise for each of our different mission sets look like?’ Then we combined them all into one.”

The exercise is about strengthening partnerships, discovery, learning and improving together as an integrated team, according to AMC officials.  Guardian will provide Airmen an opportunity to work with joint services, international partners and industry. – US Air Force
