Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Brandt, C-130 Hercules loadmaster assigned to the 731st Airlift Squadron, briefs trainees about C-130 Hercules aircraft capabilities Apr. 2, 2017, at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo. The trainees are in the 302nd Airlift Wing and 310th Space Wing Development and Training Flight. The purpose of D&TF is to prepare trainees for basic training, technical school, and an Air Force Reserve career. “The goal is to get our trainees on a C-130 Hercules tour every four months,” said Tech. Sgt. Jemario Patterson, 302nd AW D&TF program coordinator. “We tour other 302nd AW squadrons so trainees can learn the mission of each unit and see reservists in action.” (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.
