ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam --

Since Dynamic Force Employment’s creation, DFE directs joint forces to one common theme- U.S. military forces operating strategically predictable but operationally unpredictably.

 “A rotational schedule that allows me to tell you three years from now which aircraft carrier will be where in the world is ill suited to a world bristling with great-power challenges,” said former Secretary of Defense James Mattis, during a 2018 Congressional hearing.

Andersen Air Force Base hosted a DFE this last month called WestPac, starting early November, with F-22 Raptors assigned to the 94th Fighter Squadron, 1st Fighter Wing, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia. The F-22s will depart Andersen AFB at the beginning of December.

“The 94th FS deployed roughly 300 personnel from Langley AFB to Andersen AFB, and operated for a period of five weeks,” said a flight commander from the 94th FS, who asked to remain anonymous for operational security. “Within that five week period, our pilots completed numerous missions throughout the area of responsibility, and have forward deployed across Asia to protect U.S. Territories and deter foreign aggression.”

During this time frame, the 94th FS was joined by the 36th Airlift Squadron, from the 374 Airlift Wing, Yokota Air Base, Japan, and Andersen AFB’s own 36th Contingency Response Group.

The 36th AS assisted in a hot-refuel operation by providing C-130J Hercules carrying an Aerial Bulk Fuel Delivery System. These assets provided essential fuel for the Raptors and demonstrated a strategically predictable, but operationally unpredictable way to deliver fuel anywhere in the Indo-Pacific.

“INDOPACOM is home to our greatest strategic competitors, near-peer capabilities that can influence events in the entire region,” the 94th FS flight commander mentioned. “The 94th FS is demonstrating the ability to navigate the open waters of the Indo-Pacific. By bringing the world’s top air dominance fighter into theater, we counter that power and check the influence they can assert.”

U.S. Marines with the Military Police Company, 3rd Law Enforcement Battalion, III Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group conducted security operations on board Andersen Air Force Base in support of the 36th Security Forces Squadron and Dynamic Force Employment 21.  Daily tasks include garrison law enforcement operations, sensitive site security, and perimeter security patrols. The ability for U.S. Marines and Airmen to integrate at the tactical level contributed to the readiness of a combined U.S. force in the Indo-Pacific region.  

“Our presence has enhanced the 36th SFS’s ability to accomplish their mission and provides increased security for strategic assets that are currently forward-deployed to Andersen Air Force Base,” said U.S. Marine Corps Capt. Thomas A. Fiammetta, Company Commander, Military Police Company.

The 36th CRG completed hot refuel site certifications, airfield surveys, and host nation fuel site assessments for the Island of Palau before the 94th FS and 36th AS traveled to the country for a flyover.

The 36th CRG also was a direct liaison to the government of Palau for any missions that took place in the area, and was the subject matter focal point in between military forces and the civilian population, said U.S. Air Force Maj. Kent Germaine, an assistant director of operations assigned to the 36th Contingency Response Group.

“That was the first mission that I was directly a part of, that helped make it happen in Palau,” said U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Ryan Smith, the operations superintendent assigned to the 36th Contingency Response Support Squadron. “We directly helped make that happen in Palau. Multiple squadrons within the 36th CRG were there to conduct a survey.”

Smith explained that the site surveys conducted by the 36th CRG gives both short and long term options for operations under the umbrella of DFE and other contingency operations. He said that doing so gives an active runway for future use for aircraft in future missions.

“The Pacific AOR is the most likely location for the near peer fight that the F-22 trains to fight,” said the 94th FS flight commander. “By deploying the 94th FS to the AOR, it shows our adversaries that the 5th generation mission focus is on this future conflict. Furthermore, at a unit level by deploying the 94th FS to the Pacific it affords all of the squadron pilots to gain experience flying in this region of the world.”

#TeamAndersenDYK the fire prevention experts recommend to never leave open flames or cooking unattended, to check lint traps regularly as well as checking electrical outlets to make sure they are being used properly. In addition, family members of all ages should know and follow a shared emergency escape plan. Andersen firefighters recommend that, in case of fire, residents use their established escape plan and proceed to a designated rally point, a safe distance away from the flames and smoke. Once outside, immediately call 911 and describe the situation to dispatchers as calmly as possible. Fires happen sporadically, so please pay attention to your housekeeping, your surroundings and when you’re cooking or even just near a flame. #safety
Calling all football fans and history buffs!!! Immediately after World War II, the American military stationed in the South Pacific began playing full-contact football - pads and all. Andersen Air Force Base's Gilkeson Field, named after Brig. Gen. Adlai H. Gilkeson, commanding general of the 19th Bombardment Wing from 1949 to 1951, served as home of the North Field Bombers, the base football team! Teams in Japan, the Philippines, and Guam played in local military leagues, occasionally flying long distances to compete. A league champ on Guam wasn't determined until 1947, when the 1st Marine Brigade and the 501st Port Battalion tied for the island championship. The North Field (later Andersen) Bombers went undefeated in the 1948 season to capture the island title, which began a long legacy of the most successful football team on Guam for the next 34 years. The Bombers won at least 17 league/island championships - including 11 titles in a row from 1955 to 1966. The last Bomber championship was in 1974. Other teams on the island were also rich in tradition and history. In short, while the Navy dominated the league with their number of teams in action, it was the Andersen Bombers that dominated on the scoreboard and in the standings. The Bombers lasted until the leagues' end after the 1981 season. #TeamAndersen #TBT #NorthFieldBombers Joint Region Marianas US Naval Base Guam U.S. Pacific Air Forces 1st Marine Brigade
Every flight starts with planning! And a trip to Aircrew Flight Equipment. AFE Airmen maintain equipment used by pilots, which are essential for survival capabilities. AFE Airmen provide direct support to the Continuous Bomber Presence. Thanks, AFE!
The United States, along with Mexico and the Philippines, were ranked one of the world's worst places for human trafficking in 2018. In the U.S., there is no official number of human trafficking victims, but estimates place it in the hundreds of thousands. Look for these indicators to help combat human trafficking.
WARNING: Security Forces will deny access to the base and/or issue fines for not updating your vehicle registration or not having insurance.

#TeamAndersenDYK every day in the United States, about 10 people die from unintentional drowning, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the U.S. Many Airmen and families enjoy swimming within the shallow water, but some choose to swim beyond the reef into deeper depths. Since there is no continental shelf around Guam, the landmass underwater does not have a gradual slope; therefore, the water depth drops suddenly. Swimmers are advised not to swim beyond the reef and into the deep open water to avoid hazardous waves and currents or other harmful conditions. Alcohol is also a major cause of water-related incidents. Among adolescents and adults, alcohol use is involved in up to 70 percent of deaths associated with water recreation, according to the CDC. Drinking alcohol causes a lack of coordination, disturbance of the inner ear, impaired reaction time and impaired judgment, which can cause someone to become injured or drown while swimming. Please be safe when out swimming. Never swim alone, drink while swimming, and pay attention to the flag conditions. #safety
