The Drill

COAST GUARD AIR STATION BORINQUEN, Puerto Rico -- Tech. Sgts. Rick Howard (left) and Todd Bowey bore a hole for a fencepost here Feb. 9, 2010. Bowey is a medic/firefighter with the 176th Civil Engineer Squadron; Howard is a heavy mobile equipment mechanic with the 176th Logistics Readiness Squadron. A group of 45 Civil Engineer Squadron members spent two weeks here in early February to train and sharpen their skills on a wide range of infrastructure projects, upgrades and renovations (Howard was one of two 176 LRS members who deployed to provide mechanical support to the 176 CES deployers). The 176 CES undertakes such a mission -- called a Deployment for Training, or DFT -- every year or two. Recent DFTs have taken the squadron's men and women to Israel, Southern California, Hawaii, Ecuador, Okinawa, Minnesota and Texas. Alaska Air National Guard photo by 1st. Lt. John Callahan.
