Team Minot worked hard this summer while they competed in the Global Strike Challenge. Global Strike Challenge is the world’s largest competition involving bombers, intercontinental ballistic missiles, helicopter operations and security forces.
As the challenge closes, Airmen are looking forward to seeing the results of their hard work and dedication.
The competition occurs every other year throughout the summer months. It contains units from all across the Air Force, Air Force Reserve and the Air National Guard.
Teams compete in events that require innovative thinking and teamwork. Approximately 450 competitors take part in the GSC which test Airmen rigorously.
The goals for the challenge are to showcase the world’s premier bomber and ICBM force. It displays pride for the Air Force through competition and teamwork, recognizes outstanding personnel and teams and improves the Air Force’s combat capabilities through competition and communication.
Approximately 33,700 Airmen make-up Global Strike Command, whose mission is to provide strategic deterrence, global strike operations and combat support.
