CMSgt. Matt Caruso, AFSOC’s command chief, during a ceremony at Hurlburt on Oct. 3. "It means AFSOC is making progress in meeting the Air Force’s vision of modernizing our aging fleet," he added. Officials activated a stay-behind detachment—1st Special Operations Group, Det. 1—at Hurlburt to see the unit's MC-130Ps to retirement in May 2015. Until then, the detachment "will continue to provide aerial refueling to SOF vertical-lift assets as well as support infiltration and exfiltration operations," said 1st SOG Commander Col. Shawn Cameron. (Hurlburt report by A1C Jeff Parkinson)
