Reserve member of the 96th Aerial Port Squadron drives a forklift on the flightline to help load cargo pallets on a C-130J Super Hercules for training Aug. 2, 2020, at Little Rock Air Force Base, Ark. This was the first in-person training event for the 913th Airlift Group since COVID-19 swept across the U.S. Using health precaution measures, reserve members were able to restore readiness while mitigating health risks, ensuring no COVID-19 cases were transmitted among members over the weekend. The majority of our Reserve members have to meet the same requirements of Active Duty personnel. This means they have to balance a fulltime civilian job or college studies while maintaining their military readiness. (U.S. Air Force Reserve photo by Maj. Ashley Walker)
