Nebraska ANG participates in Ample Strike 2018

Master Sgt. Scott Sokolik, communications navigator for the 155th Air Refueling Wing, Nebraska Air National Guard, performs final checks on a KC-135 Stratotanker refueling aircraft before take-off at Pardubice Air Base, Czech Republic, during Exercise Ample Strike 2018. Amplet Strike is a Czech Republic-led, multinational exercise that offers air/land integration training to joint terminal attack controllers (JTACS) and close air support (CAS) aircrews. The 155th ARW operated as the premier tanker unit for the exercise, strengthening the relationship Nebraska has with the Czech Republic through both Ample Strike and the State Partnership Program.
