JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. -- Members of the 4th Combat Camera Squadron, Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, recently returned from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. after supporting exercise Mobility Guardian.

The exercise served as a milestone event for the squadron which activated earlier in the year in a total force initiative construct with the active duty 1st CTCS, which whom they are currently co-located.

Capt. Zach Anderson, 4th CTCS, led 36 Airmen from four different units to include the 3rd CTCS and Operating Local Hill. “During this exercise we saw how effectively the active and Reserve components of combat camera can integrate and work together seamlessly as a cohesive force,” he said.

”In an era of high operational tempos with limited resources and personnel, it's imperative the two components work together to leverage each other's strengths toward mission success," Anderson added.

Combat camera operated from four different locations throughout Washington capturing day and night imagery of more than 3,650 Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and international partners participating in everything from paratrooper jumps to aerial refueling.

Mobility Guardian is Air Mobility Command's premier exercise, providing an opportunity for the Mobility Air Forces to train with joint and international partners in airlift, air refueling, aeromedical evacuation and mobility support.

Staff Sgt. Kyle Brasier, 4th CTCS, was positioned at the Grant County Regional Airport, Moses Lake. “It was great working with members of 1 CTCS,” he said.

“I think we really bonded,” Brasier added. “You get to know someone pretty well when work with them in the field.”

In 14 days the team captured imagery that was distributed to 132 media outlets in 22 states and 10 countries.
