US, Israeli airmen fortify airlift capabilities

An Israeli Defense Force jumpmaster looks over the rig of a U.S. Army air cavalry Soldier attached to the 173rd Air Brigade from Vincenza, Italy , prior to an air drop sortie in support of exercise Juniper Falcon May 15, 2017, at Nevatim Air Force Base, Israel. Juniper Falcon 17 represented the combination of several bi-lateral component exercises with Israel Defense Forces that have been executed annually since 2011. The exercises were combined to increase joint training opportunities and capitalize on transportation and cost efficiencies gained by aggregating forces. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt.
