Hohenfels, Germany –
A U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command Logistics Assistance Representative assigned to the 405th Army Field Support Brigade, provided technical training to Soldiers with C Company's MEDEVAC flight crew from 2nd General Support Aviation Battalion, 1st Combat Aviation Brigade, while supporting Saber Junction 21 at Hohenfels Training Area, Germany, Sept. 14.
James Scism showed the aviation Soldiers the common points of failure on the HH-60M, AN/APR-39 Radar Warning System and how to troubleshoot and replace a nose gear box engine chip detector. This training greatly improved the aviation Soldiers' knowledge while also increasing the unit's readiness.
