Saber Strike

Members of the 127th Wing Security Forces Squadron and Latvian Military Police, who are also Presidential Guards, perform a security detail to guard both Michigan and Pennsylvania Air National Guard KC-135s during Saber Strike 2015. The Airmen from the 127th Wing, Michigan Air National Guard, have traveled to Latvia for the sole purpose of providing around-the-clock security to ensure the aircraft are completely secured and safe to support mission taskings during the exercise. The Michigan National Guard is a part of a Department of Defense sponsored State Partnership Program between Michigan and the Latvian government, which began in 1993. Exercise Saber Strike 2015 brought 14 ally and partner nations together to increase interoperability between military forces. (U.S.Air National Guard photo by Capt. Anthony J. Lesterson)
