JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. --
U.S. Soldiers with I Corps set up and test a new, early entry command post concept aboard a C-17 Globemaster III while flying in the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command area of responsibility during Exercise Rainier War 21B Nov. 9, 2021. I Corps deployment and redeployment efforts from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, included ensuring uninterrupted communication capabilities, even while in flight, aboard a C-17 Globemaster III. Rainier War 21B exercised and evaluated the 62nd Airlift Wing’s ability to employ the force and their ability to perform during wartime and contingency taskings in a high-intensity, wartime contested, degraded and operationally limited environment while supporting the contingency operations against a near-peer adversary in the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command area of responsibility.
