404th Civil Affairs Battalion conducts Airborne Ops

By Senior Airman Matt Porter 87th Air Base Wing

U.S. Army Soldiers assigned to the 404th Civil Affairs Battalion, conducted an airborne operation at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. on 10 Sept. 2022. The non-tactical airborne operation was held at the Army Aviation Facility in order to maintain mission readiness and proficiency among their paratroopers with the assistance of two CH-47’s out of Virginia.

The Army Aviation Facility was created through a MILCON effort valued at 11.7 million dollars and made possible by the joint effort of ASA Fort Dix and the U.S. Marine Corps Marine Aircraft Group 49. The 2100 square foot building is host to an Army Ramp Management Area which provides a wide range of capabilities for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft such as the C-130, CH-47S, and UH-60S.
