Timothy Kennedy marshals a Latvian Mi-8 helicopter in part of sling-load operations training during the Air Force-specific portion of Saber Strike June 17, 2014, on Lielvarde Air Base, Latvia. During the final week of Saber Strike 2014 the 435th Contingency Response Group, in conjunction with the 37th Airlift Squadron, trained on the full capabilities to open the Latvian air base. They also trained with Latvian and Estonian service members on airfield operations, command and control of air and space forces, weather support, and protection of operational forces, aircraft maintenance, and aerial port services. Kennedy is assigned to the 435th Security Forces Squadron. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko)
