U.S. Air Force Airmen assigned to the 181st Civil Engineering Squadron deployed to Andersen AFB, Guam, for their annual training July 10-28, 2016.

The 181st CES deployed over 20 Airmen and equipment in efforts to support the construction of buildings on Andersen AFB.

“We are building a field training exercise warehouse for the Red Horse unit,” said U.S. Air Force Maj. David Lasagna, 181st CES commander.

All components of the 181st CES were utilized in construction of the warehouse.

“We have HVAC here installing split system units,” Lasagna said.

“We also have structures that will hang doors, paint, and build the bathroom structure. Then we have our electricians here doing all the low voltage
power as well as the high voltage power for the HVAC units. We also have our heavy equipment operators here doing a lot of the site work.”
The 181st CES also deployed to train on their skill-sets and readiness.

The Airmen completed all their tasks ahead of schedule even with rain delays.

“This is the best group we’ve had,” said Senior Master Sgt. Bryon Gullett, 189th CES, Arkansas Air National Guard.

The Airmen of the 181st CES set the standard and that is the Racer way.
