CGO staff ride explores the history of airpower at Operation Market Garden

Staff ride participants visit what is now the John S. Thompson Bridge in the Netherlands, Sept. 2, 2015, which was seized from the Germans by the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment after landing in fields 600 meters to the west in 1944. This bridge was one of the many places that airmen participating in the Operation Market Garden staff ride stopped to see along their route. The staff ride was part of a series that General Frank Gorenc, Commander, U.S. Air Forces in Europe, U.S. Air Forces in Africa, has organized to foster the deliberate professional development of USAFE-AFAFRICA airmen.
