Year of Defender sharpens spear of defender
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Chad Rogers, 627th Security Forces Squadron (SFS) noncommissioned officer in charge of plans and programs, removes his weapon during a simulated active-shooter training scenario at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., April 30, 2019. Top Air Force leaders declared 2019 as the Year of the Defender, initiating the Reconstitute Defender Initiative to revitalize the security forces squadron across the Air Force. As a part of this, the 627th SFS has worked to increase their time using the U.S. Army’s urban-response simulator for training. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Tryphena Mayhugh)
