RAF MILDENHALL, England --
While non-mission essential personnel were not required to report to work during last week's snow storm, the 100th Logistics Readiness Squadron was on hand and tasked with a short-notice delivery. A team of four drove more than 500 miles, safely maneuvering snow-covered roadways and adverse weather, to pick up 30 tons of anti-icing product for the airfield.
The 100th LRS personnel who made up the team were, from left to right, Senior Airman Forrest Hopple, 100th LRS vehicle maintenance journeymen; Staff Sgt. Adam Chavira, 100th LRS vehicle maintenance journeymen; Staff Sgt. Alexander Lawrence, 100th LRS vehicle operations dispatcher; and Nick Turpin, 100th LRS vehicle operations deployment and distribution flight training manager. Their efforts, along with a team of Airmen involved in logistics planning, allowed RAF Mildenhall to remain operational during the storm.
