U.S. Army military police conduct squad training after unloading from an Alaska National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska.  The MPs, assigned to 164th Military Police Company, 793rd Military Police Battalion, 3rd Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, practiced securing landing zones, responding to snipers and small arms attacks and maneuvering through snowy woods in preparation for an upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.

Joint Base-Elmendorf-Richardson, home to the 11th Air Force and U.S. Army Alaska, is the result of a congressionally mandated merger of Elmendorf Air Force Base and the Army’s Fort Richardson to save money and eliminate duplication of services.
