Maintainers with the Michigan National Guard's 127th Maintenance Group, agile combat employment team, referred to as the, "ACE Team," paired with tactical air control party personnel assigned to the Kansas National Guard's 284th Air Support Operations Squadron, creating a unique training dynamic in Alpena, Michigan, May 18-25, 2024. The TACP Airmen communicate directly with fighter aircraft during close air support missions in joint combat environments, making them ideal trainers for the A-10 Thunderbolt II maintainers tasked with the new ACE mission set.
