Specialists Eduardo Valenzuela and Leo Desouza, with the 238th Transportation Company from the Military Ocean Terminal in Concord, Calif., learn to secure a chain to a C-5 Galaxy cargo aircraft July 23, 2016. The Soldiers were learning from the aerial port personnel part of the 349th Air Mobility Wing during exercise PATRIOT WYVERN at Travis Air Force Base Calif. The PATRIOT WYVERN exercises are hands-on, bi-annual events conducted to hone combat skills and improve organizational interoperability. The code name "Patriot" is common to many Air Force Reserve led exercises, such as Operation PATRIOT EXPRESS. The wyvern name derives from the mythical winged creature found on the 349th AMW's unit crest. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Cindy G. Alejandrez)
