The 240th Civil Engineering Flight breaks ground on new facilities to upgrade for physically and mentally handicapped children and adults.
Senior Airman Justin Jackson from the 203rd Red Horse Squadron, Virginia Beach Va., digs a canal to lay water and sewer piping at St. Michael’s Association for Special Education school in Window Rock, Ariz., on May 19, 2010. The Red Horse team, along with the 240th Civil Engineering Flight, 140th Wing, Colorado Air National Guard, are out at St. Michael’s breaking ground on new facilities across campus. The effort to upgrade the complex for physically and mentally handicapped children and adults is part of the National Guard’s Innovative Readiness Training program, a civil-military affairs program that links military units with civilian communities for humanitarian projects. Throughout the next five years several Civil Engineering teams across the Air National Guard will rotate every two weeks to help this under privileged school. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
