HAYNEVILLE, Ala. -- Staff Sgt. Abigail Olivares, a utilities specialist from the 176th Civil Engineer Squadron, learns to cut a structural beam May 4 under the guidance of Tech. Sgt. Mark Smith, also from the 176th CES, for a patio covering at a clinic here. Thirty-five members of the 176th Wing arrived here May 1 for 12 days of training through the Innovative Readiness Program. This program allows Guard and Reserve members to get the training they need while at the same time delivering real-world results -- in this case, providing an array of health-care and structural services to a historically underserved area.
