Exercise Gryphon Pacific 20-1
Forward Area Refueling Point Airmen temporarily assigned to the 18th Wing, Kadena Air Base, Japan, point toward mission objectives supporting the 353rd Special Operations Group during Exercise Gryphon Pacific 20-1, Nov. 15, 2019. FARP operations are an essential part of the expeditionary basing concept. Special operators use the ability to go anywhere and establish an airfield in order to bring in forces, refuel, rearm, and continue the mission wherever it’s needed.
