Desert Defender graduates first joint Air Force-Navy course
Gunner Staff Sgt. Joshua Hopkins fires the M2 .50 caliber machine gun while assistant gunner U.S. Petty Officer 3rd Class Derek Dick monitors ammunition during heavy weapons firing on Fort Bliss' Range 39. Heavy weapons firing is just one part of the Air Force Security Forces Center Desert Defender Ground Combat Readiness Training Center's basic security course. The course is typically taken just prior to a security forces member's deployment to a forward location. (U.S. Air Force photo by Debbie Aragon)
