Rodeo time for military truckers

For the first time ever, Dover Air Force Base in Dover, DE, played host to a “ground transportation rodeo” that pitted airmen from the 436th Logistics Readiness Squadron (LRS) at Dover against the 87th LRS based out of McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ. Six two-man teams from each group went head-to-head in timed forklift and tractor-trailer operations, racing the clock while loading containers onto flatbed trailers as well as maneuvering them and the forklifts through an obstacle course.
