In the center of all the action is where Command Post specialists work, often alongside the base Wing Commander. Specific tasks vary from base to base, but the basic job is to help facilitate the primary base mission. If you're on a nuclear missile base, you'll help the commander stay in contact with higher level command. On bases with busy flight lines, you'll schedule flights, loading and unloading cargo, aircraft maintenance and more. Command Post specialists are essential to making sure a base operates smoothly and effectively.
