The 8th Healthcare Operations Squadron bioenvironmental engineering flight executes a chemical warfare agent response training scenario during a training event at Kunsan Air Base, Republic of Korea, Sept. 14, 2022.

While conducting increased water sampling operations to ensure the water on the installation stays drinkable the flight responded to a simulated chemical attack and verified the specific agents in the air.

Identifying the types of attacks helps the installation safely stay operational and ensure the F-16 Fighting Falcon flying mission continues.
