Combat Operations Readiness Training

Airmen inspect their weapons preparing for a live training exercise March 3, which required 944th and 56th Logistic Readiness Squadron members to defend themselves with combat skills. The paintball armed M-4 rifles, took the place of live ammunition, providing Airmen the opportunity to take and practice live-fire defensive postures. Training was conducted by instructors with real-world combat experience, some recently returning from deployment. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Louis Vega)
