Nebraska ANG participates in Ample Strike 2018

Staff Sgt. Matthew Parker, in-flight refueling specialist, 155th Air Refueling Wing, Nebraska Air National Guard, prepares a KC-135 Stratotanker refueling aircraft to top off an F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft assigned to the 162nd Wing, Arizona Air National Guard, over Pardubice Air Base, Czech Republic, during Exercise Ample Strike 2018. Ample Strike is a Czech Republic-led exercise with aircraft and participants conducting day and night operations out of the Czech Republic to improve NATO allies and partner nation interoperability. Our presence in Europe and the relationships built among our NATO allies and European partners provide the United States the strategic access critical to meet our commitment to respond to threats against them.
