Air Force Reservists from the 67th Aerial Port Squadron brought home three trophies and 2nd place overall in Air Force Reserve Command's Port Dawg Challenge at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Ga. June 19-22.
The competition brought together 19 teams from across AFRC. Events included maneuvering a 25-ton Halverson loader and a 10K forklift; processing cargo; planning loads; building up pallets; restraining and processing cargo; and participating in a fit-to-fight test.
"My team did amazing," said Master Sgt. Brandon De Los Reyes, the 67th APS team lead. "I'm very happy with second place overall."
The six aerial porters who participated won three trophies. They received the fit-to-fight award for the fitness portion of the challenge and earned the highest marks on the written exam, which quizzed contestants on regulations and procedures in the aerial port career field. The team also prevailed in the 10K forklift obstacle course.
