Members of the 341st Security Forces Group prepare to load a helicopter assigned to the 40th Helicopter Squadron during a launch facility recapture exercise during Global Thunder 19, Oct. 30, 2018, at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont. Global Thunder provides training opportunities that assess all U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) mission areas and joint and field training operational readiness, with a specific focus on nuclear readiness. The training is based on a notional scenario developed to drive execution of USSTRATCOM and component forces' ability to support the geographic combatant commands, deter adversaries and, if necessary, employ forces as directed by the President of the United States.
