Civic leaders visit Hurricane Hunters

A team of civic leaders prepare for action in a combat convoy simulator during their visit to the Naval Construction Battalion Center Gulfport, the training center for the U.S. Navy’s famed SeaBees, located here, April 16, 2015. The civic leaders were all participants in the 910th Airlift Wing’s Civic Leader Tour 2015 originating from Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio. The visit to the Navy installation, which allowed the Ohio civic leaders to see operations of a sister service and the joint interaction between services including meeting an Air Force instructor at the SeaBee school house, was part of the itinerary of the two-day, one-night event, held April 15-16, 2015, designed to give attendees a better understanding of the Air Force Reserve mission and how it differs from base to base around the country.
