Logistics readiness squadron ensures safe reliable small arms sh

Members of the 509th Logistics Readiness Squadron at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri prepare to ship one of the largest small arms loads of the year. Whiteman logistics technicians are tasked with the responsibility of inspecting, verifying, securing and properly shipping these assets until they reach their destination. Four weapon details had to be checked a total of four times to ensure proper measures had been taken before they are cleared for shipment. The members shipped more than 1000 M16A2 rifles to keep in correspondence with the amount of munitions allowed be held to storage facilities at Whiteman AFB. The 509th LRS works in conjunction with the 131st LRS Air National Guard unit to bring the allocation percentages down even further.
