PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. —  Master Sgt. Lamont Wood (left) explains the layout of a Modular Airborne Firefighting System II control panel to Canadian Lt. Gen. J.M. Duval (center) and Chief Master Sgt. W. Allen Usry during a 302nd Airlift Wing-sponsored presentation on Air Force Reserve missions to senior North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command officials July 26 at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo. The visit, headlined by Navy Adm. James A. Winnefeld, Jr., NORAD and USNORTHCOM commander, helped to give the senior leaders a better understanding of the specialized missions the AF Reserve supports, as well as the capabilities it can provide to civilian-related missions if called upon. General Duval is the NORAD deputy commander, and Chief Usry is the senior enlisted advisor for NORAD and USNORTHCOM. Sergeant Wood is a C-130 Hercules loadmaster within the 302nd AW.
