When 12 security forces Airmen from the 442nd Fighter Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base first received word of their deployment, they thought they knew what lay ahead. The U.S. Air Force Reserve Airmen began their training to become a fly-away security team before their deployment in early December. As information flowed that the deployment tasking had changed – the Airmen were headed to the 407th Air Expeditionary Group to perform base security, not FAST support – many of them were disappointed they would not do the job for which they were trained, according to Senior Airman Logan Schneider. Little did Schneider and his fellow Airmen know this would be the first of several changes to their mission in the fight against ISIS.
