I'm Rachel Garneau. I'm a Staff Sergeant in the US Air Force Reserves. We're at the Fitness Center Annex on Joint Base Lewis-McChord. At the Annex, you can do cardio equipment, you can do strength training, they've got weights, they've got exercise balls. You can do classes. That's a really great benefit that we have here at the Annex. They've got it all. The Air Force PT Test for the Reserves, the Active Duty and for the Guard, you'll do a mile and a half run, you'll do sit-ups or crunches, whatever you want to call them. The Air Force calls them crunches sometimes. You'll do pushups, and then the other component is your waist measurement. So you're always wanting to keep that down. I like to do cardio so that whenever I do my run for the PT Test, you know, I can get a quick run time. And whatever else I have time for that day, I'll do just about anything. Some people think that you're good after Basic Training on the PT Test for the Military, but I know for the Air Force, the Air Force Reserves, and for the Guard, you can test once a year. If you get a 90 or above on your test, which is considered excellent, but if you get from a 75 to a 90, you'll test every six months. When you're deployed, you get a lot of the same amenities that you get while you're in "garrison," as they call it, when you're back at home at your home base. They'll have gyms for you. There'll be some sort of fitness center for you, because they want you to keep up your fitness while you're downrange. And the Air Force has even started doing PT Tests downrange. It used to be, you knew you weren't going to get fitness tested while you're deployed. Now they want to make sure that you're keeping up your fitness while you're downrange, because that's where you really need to be fit. When you're a Reservist, your dependents can absolutely use the base['s] morale, welfare and recreation facility. So that's the gym, the movie theater, any of the on-base things, the bowling center and stuff like that. But especially the gym. A lot of the dependents like to come to the gym and get fit. And now a lot of the gyms are starting to offer childcare on base as well, so they get that benefit as well. It's amazing how state of the art they have gotten fitness for the Air Force, and for all the services. Because we can use any gym at any base, you know, that we're near. So it is amazing how nice they are. And they definitely stack up to the gyms on the civilian side too. They've really done a lot to make sure Reservists are treated well.


AATC conducts operational test (OT) on behalf of each United States Air Force Major Command and possesses 7 F-16C Fighting Falcon Block 25/32 aircraft to support the primary mission of F-16 Operational Flight Program (OFP) testing.

AATC also operates a temporary A-10A Thunderbolt II OT detachment at Davis-Monthan AFB, with the support of the 917th Wing, Barksdale AFB, Louisiana and the host 355th Wing at Davis-Monthan.

The unit also is tasked and accomplishes testing on a wide variety of other Air Reserve Command aircraft, including F-16 Block 40/42, B-52, F-15A/B, HH-60, HC-130 and electronic combat systems for those aircraft. AATC has also conducted testing in support of Air Mobility Command on C-130, C-5, KC-10 and KC-135 aircraft.

AATC is uniquely postured to take advantage of modernization efforts that are funded by the National Guard and Reserve Equipment Account (NGREA) which is unprogrammed funding suited to near-term improvements. AATC efforts exploiting NGREA resources complement long-range AF programs and have enabled transformational modernization efforts such as Night Vision Devices for fighter aircraft (first fielded in the ARC), Situational Awareness Data Link (SADL), a low-cost datalink complementing AF network enabled operations, and Litening Targeting Pods, which greatly increased the number of precision strike aircraft in the AF inventory and revolutionized how the AF delivers joint fires and conducts non-traditional intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance.
