Wolf Pack takes aim at Beverly Midnight 12-03
7/9/2012 - KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- Continuing the tradition of mission readiness and support, the Wolf Pack 2012-2013 class proceeded into its first operational readiness exercise this week under the direction of Wolf 52, Col. John W. Pearse, 8th Fighter Wing commander.
Guided by an all new line-up of leadership, new and returning Airmen can expect the same attention to detail as seen in past exercises. Known for its almost "nothing is simulated" response training, 8th FW alum work to transition a new class into the Wolf Pack way.
"One of our main focuses this week is to introduce a new class of Airmen to how we exercise the mission," said Pearse. "I'm excited and encouraged to see all the dedicated Airmen out there stepping up to train and prepare our new class," he added.
While exercises keep Airmen inspection-ready, maintaining combat readiness remains the top priority of all servicemembers in the Republic of Korea.
"The safety and security of the Republic of Korea remains at the heart of operations here at the Wolf Pack, we remain faithful partners in deterring a very real threat from the north," said Pearse.
"I'm confident in every member of the 8th Fighter Wing, and believe that the new class will continue to uphold the same level of excellence the Wolf Pack is known for," he added.
