MARCH AIR RESERVE BASE, CALIF. --
Colonel Samuel Mahaney, 452d Air Mobility Wing commander performs an identification check on a March member entering the base, during his hands-on program called "Dirty Thursday," April 11. Mahaney was given an orientation brief on the daily operations of the 452d Security Forces Squadron, which was followed by a shadowing session at the front gate. Dirty Thursday allows the commander to work alongside Airmen, getting his hands and clothes dirty. He noted that it is a great opportunity to know the people who work in the wing, as well as a chance to learn what individuals are really doing to support the mission.
