Team McChord kicks off Exercise Rainier War 23A

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Derek Bright, 62d Logistics Readiness Squadron ground transportation, uses a forklift to move cargo during Exercise Rainier War 23A at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, Sept. 19, 2023. Rainier War is an exercise led by the 62d Airlift Wing designed to evaluate the ability to generate, employ and sustain in-garrison and forward deployed forces. These exercises are necessary in assessing and maintaining wartime operational tempos, ensuring command and control across multiple locations. During the exercise, Airmen will respond to scenarios that replicate today’s contingency operations and will address full-spectrum readiness against modern threats brought on by peer adversaries.
