F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. --

The 90th Civil Engineer Squadron took part in the 90 CES Readiness Challenge on F.E. Warren Air Force Base, July 1, 2021.

 

The challenge had Airmen take on different challenges to test their abilities and give them a chance to further expand their skills. 

 

“The purpose of our readiness challenge was to exercise our readiness capabilities from what we’ve learned and trained on monthly,” said Tech Sgt. Allen Adams, Unit Prime BEEF (Base Engineer Emergency Force) Manager with 90 CES. “We incorporated our multi-capable Airmen skills with agile combat employment through combining multiple AFSCs into teams.”

 

Some of the challenges that Airmen could participate in were a ruck around the entire Prime BEEF site, a shoot no-shoot challenge where Airmen got hands-on experience breaking down weapons as well as sweeping an area.

 

“We wanted to conduct a fun, challenging and safe expeditionary learning environment for our Airmen,” said Adams.

 

The end of the exercise brings a time for the Airmen to reflect on what they did well as well as see where they can do better.
