August 2017 - Sailors and Airmen work side-by-side building critical skill sets during the first joint-service security course at the Air Force Desert Defender Ground Combat Readiness Training Center. Although Sailors have attended two Desert Defender classes in the past, this was the first time Air Force and Navy students completed the same course together.
Desert Defender, the Air Force’s largest security forces readiness training center, focuses on fundamental base defense training prior to a deployment. The standard security operations curriculum experienced by the joint students focused on topics like improvised explosive device detection, mounted and dismounted patrols, counter insurgency operations, culture awareness, entry control point operations, vehicle roll-over response, as well as combat lifesaving skills.
