6/21/2012 - DOBBINS AIR RESERVE BASE, Ga. -- Reservists from the 46th Aerial Port Squadron at Dover Air Force Base, Del., are among those participating in the Air Force Reserve's premier aerial logistics competition here.

The 2012 Port Dawg Challenge runs through June 22 and brings together six-person teams from 17 installations - from as far away as Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii -- in a tough competition that focuses on the Air Force's worldwide mobility capability.

Aerial port units perform military logistics functions that include passenger and cargo processing, equipment loading, air cargo preparation and load plans, and supervising units engaged in aircraft loading and unloading operations.

The bi-annual event was created to generate esprit de corps within the Air Force Reserve aerial port community. In doing so, it also promotes professionalism, demonstrates air and space expeditionary forces mission capabilities, and helps identify best practices to improve wartime readiness.

Events for this year's competition test driving and loading prowess, administrative and processing skills, pallet build-up skills, forklift handling, load planning and physical fitness.
