TOP STORY >>Good luck to our 2007 Rodeo Teams!

By Brig. Gen. (s) Wayne Schatz
314th Airlift Wing commander

Two Little Rock Rodeo teams depart in one week to compete in the 2007 Air Mobility Rodeo competition July 22 through 28 at McChord Air Force Base, Wash. On behalf of Team Little Rock, we wish them the best of luck!

The competition focuses on readiness and showcases airdrop, air refueling, Security Forces, aerial port, maintenance and aeromedical evacuation as areas for evaluation. Our team has been working and training hard to make Team Little Rock proud.
The 314th Airlift Wing team took home two major awards in the 2005 competition: “Best Airdrop Wing” and “Best C-130 Wing,” and they are geared up to defend these titles during this year’s competition.

Not only is this a fun event where our airlifters showcase their skills, it's a time to show the world why Little Rock is the Combat Airlift Center of Excellence. I have complete faith that our AETC and AMC teams will represent themselves and the Rock well in both ability and professionalism.

Enjoy this special edition of the Drop Zone, showcasing our 2007 teams. Good luck!
