The 8th Communications Squadron and 8th Logistics Readiness Squadron exercised general arming procedures during Beverly Midnight 24-1, Jan. 29-30.

Airmen were issued M9 pistols and M4 carbines to test the squadrons’ ability to safeguard assets and ensure infrastructure security while executing their mission. Practicing these skills, supplemented the 8th Security Forces Squadron’s large-scale effort to defend the base and prepared 8th CS and LRS Airmen to neutralize threats in a contingent environment.

General arming was a major line of effort during the Beverly Midnight 24-1 exercise; exploring how the 8th FW can cross-utilize Airmen to perform tasks outside of their primary duties as a force multiplier.
