Airmen help train Soldiers in joint LRS training

By Airman 1st Class Jarrett Smith, 374th Airlift Wing

The 374th Logistics Readiness Squadron held a training alongside U.S. Army counterparts, stationed at Camp Zama, Japan,  as part of a skill-refresh in areas such as pallet building and equipment loading procedures at Yokota Air Base, Japan, May 1.

The 374th LRS provides increment monitor training opportunities monthly for active-duty U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force service members with secondary or additional duties, via classroom and hands-on training techniques. These sessions help increase joint force cooperation and understanding while reinforcing career field skills.

“We teach them skills such as how to build pallets and prep vehicles for joint inspections,” said Staff Sgt. Zachary Satterlee, 374th LRS Air Transportations functions supervisor. “We also go over their responsibilities as increment monitors.”

Airmen and soldiers train as increment monitors to certify and fix any issues from joint inspections on exercises and deployments. They look for any discrepancies that would keep cargo from moving to its destination.

“The course goes over the responsibilities of the unit, so that they make sure everything is being built correctly,” said Satterlee. “We train them on two different pallets, the low profile and high profile, and also go over identifying hazardous cargo and what kinds of material can and can't move together.”

Training opportunities with sister service branch members increase teamwork, help create working bonds, and prepare service members for upcoming exercises, taskings, deployments and additional training requirements.
