A National Guard joint exercise worked the sky to better air crews.
Ellsworth Air Force Base, SEER specialists, Air National Guard Medevac Lakota air crew, and HH-60s teamed up for a survival evasion resistance and escape exercise.
Officials say the purpose was to train local air National Guard UH 72 Lakota air crew in things like personal survival and escape applications.
Some of the obstacles during training were limited communication, an aggression force, and sizable terrain between air crews.
One sergeant says it's a great experience. "I think it's awesome. Any time we can get together with another unit, another branch, and do some collective training is always good," Riley Sirignano.
