Victory by Valor: Shaw Air Force Base, Part 6 - Missile Loaders

Col. James Post, Wing Commander, states that, "What I'd like to be remember for, I think, is helping facilitate the training, the most realistic training possible, and preparing our airmen to ensure that they are second to none, prepared and ready to go into combat operations."

Missile loading crews are tested monthly to see if they can quickly and safely arm the fighter jets. Staff Sergeant Jeffery Merrick describes the preparations and stresses the importance of safety with the live munitions. .
