Airmen help Soldiers, South Korea Military in Joint Training

The U.S. Air Force reports that “Osan Air Base was tested March 10, when South Korea and U.S. military branches banded together in a multi-service, multi-cultural, chemical detection and decontamination exercise scenario here during Beverly Midnight 16-01.”  

“In the scenario, a Humvee and a Patriot missile launcher from the 5th Air Defense Artillery Brigade were in transit and suspected of being contaminated.”  

“’We’ve been setting up this scenario for about two months now,’ said Tech. Sgt. Emily Martin, the 51st Civil Engineer Squadron readiness and emergency manager and lead inspection team member for the scenario. ‘The teams responded well and aided in the detection and quick decontamination of the equipment.’”  

“After sweeping affected vehicles for chemical contamination, South Korea military chemical management teams guided the vehicles to mobile decontamination pressure washers.”
