ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam --

In December of 2020, the document Action Orders to Accelerate Change Across the Air Force was released, describing what strategic approach is necessary to move forward as a force.

Since then, the 36th Wing has created and implemented new standard operating procedures to meet the call to Accelerate Change or Lose by spearheading a training guide for Agile Combat Employment concepts and Multi-Capable Airmen skillsets.

Within the 36th Wing, the 36th Contingency Response Group was placed at the forefront of writing a robust and capable training syllabus. This training plan focuses on ACE and MCA concepts executed at the wing level, and the 36th CRG was naturally right for the job.

“The Contingency Response community is the logical birthplace for training Airmen to open and operate from new locations in support of Agile Combat Employment,” said Lt. Col. Christopher Denzer, the 36th CRG deputy group commander. “The average Contingency Response Airman has always been a Multi-Capable Airman due to the adaptive and flexible nature of small teams opening a new operating location. The 36th Wing saw an opportunity to leverage already existing training capabilities and training grounds organic to the 36th CRG to start moving out on MCA training in support of ACE.”

The 36th CRG also already employs three accredited courses whose cadre represent training subject matter experts who were ready to begin creating guidance Denzer said.

Denzer explained that breaking down ACE concepts requires units to be innovative and adaptive to challenging environments. ACE can look different depending on each unit’s mission and craft, which will affect the requirements and training for service members to properly utilize MCA skills. Units falling under Air Combat Command will require different training than units under Air Mobility Command.

“At a tactical level ACE will mean different things to different units as they try to tackle problem sets specific to their aircraft, mission and potential operating environments,” said Denzer. “Our standard operating procedures will continue to evolve as units develop their specific plans to execute ACE. One unit may require more training or a higher level of proficiency on special fueling operations due to their aircraft type.”
Denzer pointed out though that ACE and MCA should not automatically mean CRG, but will eventually become synonymous with how wings operate and respond to contingency needs. U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Jason Ornellas, the quality assurance manager assigned to the 36th Logistical Readiness Squadron Petroleum, Oil and Lubrication Flight, says that his team has been involved with the development of ACE and MCA skillsets since last year.

“We have integrated with our CRG counterparts and were able to instruct PACAF’s first-ever MCA course, while also accomplishing many firsts on the island, including the first fuel bladder hot refuel to a U.S. Navy search and rescue helicopter at an austere location,” Ornellas said. “ACE and MCA training should be readily embraced by other units. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in many operations that are out of our normal scope.”

These skills will propel how the U.S. Air Force has previously responded to contingency operations, and create reliable methods of employment to project airpower with minimal environmental footprint and cost at the quickest pace possible.

Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force JoAnne S. Bass recently made a visit to Andersen AFB and performed ACE exercises alongside Airmen from the 36th CRG.

“Future conflict will never look like wars of the past,” said Chief Bass. “That is why we have to get after building multi-capable, strategically-minded, Airmen today, so they can compete, deter and win tomorrow. It was exciting to see how our Airmen are getting after it, and how Andersen is developing that skillset to ensure we are ready anytime, anywhere.”
Guam’s location is prime for the 36th CRG to respond in the Indo-Pacific region as the forward edge of U.S. Territory in the Pacific Theater said Denzer

“The 36th Wing is invested in this region and is therefore very clear on the urgency to remain a leader in this great power competition,” said Denzer. “We have found so many amplifying capabilities and mutual interests within the group, wing and even with our Allies, we would be foolish not to accelerate change in how we operate. We have a great deal of responsibility in ensuring a free and open Indo-Pacific.”

#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.

#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
