Air Force cadets learn about defense transportation

SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill., (USTCNS) --- The U.S. Transportation Command threw out the red-carpet to a group of Air Force cadets here, July 1, as a part of their training while participating in Operation Air Force.

OAF is a three-week program designed to educate cadets on the workings of operational units and to acquaint them with the everyday tasks, activities, and perceptions of Air Force personnel. The beginning of the program is an orientation of the activities that make up the mission of the hosting unit. During the cadets' training at Scott AFB, they are being hosted by the 375th Air Wing.

The seven cadets (six USAFA, and one ROTC) were given tours and briefed on all facets of USTRANSCOM's mission and the management of the Defense Transportation System. Their orientation at USTRANSCOM is being followed by training with the 375th Wing where they will be matched with a junior officer to observe and work together.

This group of future Air Force officers is the second of three to train at Scott AFB this summer as a part of the OAF program.
