380 ELRS Airmen not afraid to ‘get dirty’ defending the region

Staff Sgt. Andrew, 380th Fire and Refueler Maintenance vehicle maintainer, supports an angle beam while Col. Kevin Eastland, 380th Air Expeditionary Wing vice commander, applies an industrial acrylic adhesive for mounting the beam to an R-11 fuel truck at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, November 16, 2016. The angle beam is part of a service kit to strengthen the edges of the R-11 tank sump, requiring the paint to be stripped in order to create a proper bond between the beam and tank.
