Team members from 56th LRS perform the plank walk, which is designed to build communication, teamwork, and gain understanding for team members that unless they work in sync, the entire team fails.

The 56th Logistics Readiness Squadron conducted Wingman Day Nov. 6 at the Luke Air Force Base ability to survive and operate area. The day consisted of the squadron running an eight-station obstacle course, three miles of team jogging and a squadron barbecue.

The day also included small-group resiliency discussions facilitated by viewing scenes from the movies ‘Remember the Titans’ and ‘Blind Side.’

The LRS Resiliency Training Assistants and several LRS volunteers were responsible for the planning, coordinating, construction and monitoring of the day’s activities.

Staff Sgt. Matthew Greene and Senior Airman Jovonte Atkins, 56th LRS perform the low crawl at wingman day.

Staff Sgt. Mathew Greene, 56th LRS Fuels Flight and Staff Sgt. Samantha Renner, 56th LRS Quality Assurance, walk the balance beam station, which emphasized focus and concentration.

Staff Sgt. Samantha Renner and Senior Airman Tyler Covington, 56th LRS QA, leap over a concrete barrier in transition from the tire flip station to the low crawl. The barriers represent overcoming adversity and maintaining resiliency.

LRS Airmen work together to push the hUMVEE, a goal that cannot be accomplished by one person, but by working together with others.
