Logistics Squadron trains Multi-Capable Airmen

The 375th Logistics Readiness Squadron answered the Air Force’s call to train Airmen to be “multi-capable” with their fuels management and ground transportation teams.  

The Multi-Capable Airmen, or MCA, initiative refers to the Agile Combat Employment concept of training Airmen to do basic tasks outside of their primary specialty, creating a ready, and more lethal Air Force. 

LRS held three separate month-long training sessions where Airmen were paired with their own personal trainers for a more focused learning experience. 

“This was to train already experienced Airmen in other career field’s operations,” said Tech. Sgt. Martez Little, 375th LRS noncommissioned officer in charge of fuel distribution. “Ground transportation Airmen learned how to issue fuel from a truck, and fuels management Airmen learned how to drive buses.” 

Airmen from ground transportation, such as Senior Airman Eliezar Rivera, learned “how to check if there was any sediment, or anything that shouldn’t be in the fuel. Then, we learned how to fill up the trucks and fill up planes.” 

Because of these new advancements, multiple Airmen from each career field are now certified and can sufficiently perform each other’s duties, which is essential to keeping the mission operational.

Little added, “When we’re low on manning, we can call ground transportation and they'll now have people who can refuel C-17’s or F-18’s. They can do whatever we can do.”
