Combat comm integrates with Ninth AF during STAFFEX 18-6
U.S. Airmen with the 5th Combat Communications Group (CCG) from Robins Air Force Base, Ga., tear down the flexible communication package provided for the Ninth Air Force’s Staff Exercise (STAFFEX) 18-6 at the forward joint task force (JTF) headquarters, Sept. 28, 2018, Shaw AFB, S.C. The 5th CCG comprises of three squadrons: the 51st Combat Communications Squadron (CBCS), the 52nd CBCS and the 5th Combat Communications Supply Squadron that includes the Air Force Engineering and Technical Services (AFETS). In total, 23 Airmen, including two civilians from AFETS, participated in the STAFFEX by providing the communication platforms and support necessary for communication operations in a “deployed” location. Going forward, the 5th CBCG will be in an integral part of Ninth AF for not only future staff exercises, but also when Ninth AF is certified as a JTF-capable headquarters and is tasked to perform its joint mission.
