Various units of the 386th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron participated in a rapid airfield damage recovery exercise at Ali Al Salem Air Base, Kuwait, Sept. 15, 2021.

As the theater gateway of the U.S. Central Command’s area of responsibility, maintaining a functional runway is key to delivering decisive combat power and support throughout the theater. RADR exercises ensure that ASAB is able to quickly repair runway damage and resume air operations.
