Nitty gritty and deployment ready
Senior Airman Amonte Anthony, 30th Civil Engineer Squadron heavy equipment operator, smiles after a day of work Nov. 5, 2019, at March Air Reserve Base, Calif. Airmen assigned to the 30th CES traveled to March ARB to use equipment assigned to the 163rd CES Regional Training Site to get hands-on time with equipment they do not have access to at Vandenberg Air Force Base. As a ‘Dirt Boy’, Amonte completed tasks, such as digging trenches, repairing a simulated air field attack, and operating different heavy equipment in the deployment readiness training environment.
