A Special Tactics operator and a Forward Area Refueling Point aircrew member with the 27th Special Operations Wing prepare to fuel an F-22 Raptor with the 3rd Wing during Emerald Warrior at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Jan. 30, 2020. This was the first-ever simulated Forward Area Refueling Point for F-22 Raptors in an extreme cold weather environment. Emerald Warrior 20-1 provides annual, realistic pre-deployment training encompassing multiple joint operating areas to prepare special operations forces, conventional force enablers, partner nations, and interagency elements to integrate with and execute full spectrum special operations in an arctic climate, sharpening U.S. forces’ abilities to operate around the globe.
