The 572nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron took on a new workload last month as a U.S. Coast Guard H-model C-130 Hercules aircraft arrived for maintenance.
The 572nd will do a primary structure inspection — also known as programmed depot maintenance — on the aircraft, which is estimated to take between 180 and 200 days.
“This is the first Coast Guard aircraft we have received for this type of work,” said Doug Neel, C-130 Lead Planner for the 572nd. “We will do three for the Coast Guard on this year’s schedule.”
WASHINGTON -- Despite years of concerted effort, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the commandant of the Coast Guard are dissatisfied with progress made in reducing sexual assault in the military, and have released strategic direction to increase the emphasis on combatting the crime.
The chiefs released a "32-star" letter to commanders and leaders, titled "Strategic Direction to the Joint Force on Sexual Assault Prevention and Response." In the past two years, service members have reported 6,350 cases of sexual assault.
