Robert Shoeneberg, 39th Air Base Wing deputy commander, and Col. Kevin Lord, 39th ABW commander, during a contingency exercise at Incirlik Air Base, Türkiye, Feb. 13, 2024. The event was designed to exercise 39 Air Base Wing emergency response capabilities and provide Airmen with hands-on training. Routine training exercises optimize overall readiness in response to a chemical, biological, or radiological incident. The mission-focused training also allowed engineers, medical, emergency management, explosive ordnance disposal, bioenvironmental, communications, and several other disciplines to rehearse their capabilities both logistically and operationally.
