177th Fighter Wing leaders experience Defender's proficiency fire course
U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Eric Erickson, 177th Medical Group commander, fires the M9 pistol during weapons qualification training at the Transportation Security Administration firing range in Egg Harbor Township, N.J. on Nov. 5, 2019. Erickson, as well as the 177th Fighter Wing commander and group commanders, also took the security forces proficiency fire course, to try and get a feel for what a base Defender’s job entails.
