The Airmen of the 51st Security Forces Squadron armory are part of an elite group whose mission is none other than ensuring base personnel are armed and prepared to defend the base. Whether real-world or throughout exercises such as Beverly Midnight 16-01, these Airmen play a dual role. They provide weapons to defenders who are still actively patrolling the base and they provide weapons to augmentees and other critical exercise players, such as shelter management teams and most officers.
