U.S. Air Force cadets from the United States Air Force Academy stand in front of a C-17 Globemaster III during their visit to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, July 2, 2024. The visit was part of a job exposure program aimed at providing cadets with hands-on experience and insights into various Air Force careers. The program included briefings, tours and interactions with active-duty personnel to help cadets better understand the operational aspects of their future roles. Cadet visits like these are essential for bridging the gap between academic training and real-world military operations.
