The 1st Special Operations Squadron conducted refueling operations with the 21st Special Operations Squadron as part of Freedom Shield 23 at Daegu Air Base, Republic of Korea, Mar. 17, 2023. The MC-130J Commando II’s ability to refuel mid-flight allows aircraft to stay in the air longer to meet mission requirements. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Trevor Gordnier)
