193rd Special Operations Squadron supports Emerald Warrior Exercise

Senior Master Sgt. Philip Stuck, 193rd Special Operations Squadron loadmaster, prepares for the landing of the 193rd’s EC-130J Commando Solo aircraft after the mission May 1. The Commando Solo’s aircrew was tasked with missions of military information support operation and worked with other intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets to prevent enemy communication during the Emerald Warrior Exercise. The primary purpose of EW is to exercise special operations components in urban and irregular warfare settings to support combatant commanders in theater campaigns. EW leverages lessons from Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and other historical lessons to provide better trained and ready forces to combatant commanders.
