175th Wing - Combat Search and Rescue Training at Volk Field

Each September, for nearly the past decade, Volk Field and Hardwood Range have been fortunate enough to host a 4 day Combat Search and Rescue Training Event. This joint exercise consists primarily of A-10 Thunderbolts from the 104 Fighter Squadron, nicknamed “the Fighting O’s” from the Maryland Air National Guard as well as our very own Wisconsin Army National Guard Black Hawks, piloted by the 147th Aviation Regiment. For one week each year, these two units execute the art of Joint Combat Search and Rescue. The objective for each scenario is fairly simple, locate the Isolated Personnel (IP) and bring them home safely. However, the tactical execution of this game plan is much more complex than what most would expect.
