Royal Thai air force Flying Officer Jirot Prasoetampaisakul, 2nd Company 3rd Battalion Special Operations Combat Control Team member, performs a radio check prior to calling in a simulated close air support attack during COPE Tiger 2019 at Chandy Range, Thailand, March 15, 2019. The subject matter exchange supported COPE Tiger objectives in conjunction with the Air National Guard State Partnership Program, as Thailand is Washington’s state partner. Engagements such as this meet the primary objectives of the SPP by cultivating enduring personal and institutional relationships that enhance, influence and promote a cooperative, mutually beneficial relationship.
