Exercise WestPac Rumrunner III
U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Joseph Murvich, 18th Logistics Readiness Squadron forward area refueling point team member, prepares a fuel line for use during the third iteration of Exercise WestPac Rumrunner Oct. 16, 2020, at Kadena Air Base, Japan. The name Rumrunner originates from the Prohibition era where brigands would smuggle alcohol across county lines. These events were known as “rum running” and soon became a catchall term adopted by the military to describe a covert, swift strike event; designed to disrupt and disorient the enemy by emerging suddenly and ending the conflict just as quickly.
