Keesler Airmen Deployed for Training, Then Southeast Asia
The young airmen will learn advanced weapon training, on-base defensive tactics, and how to operate convoys before their mission. The men and women in the squadron say they’re nervous, but are ready to take on this task together.
Sr. Airman Charelle Chapobianco, 403rd Wing Squadron, says, “I am a little nervous, but I am ready. I’m ready for it just because it is my first deployment.”
Sr. Airman Christopher Cabibi, 403rd Wing Squadron, says, “This training in Nevada, now we’ll get to know each other a little better.”
Higher ranked reservists deployed on the same mission earlier this week.
