A light cloud cover, bright sunlight and the constant humming of pesky mosquitoes and locusts under a canopy of dense foliage couldn't keep members of the Army's 138th Military Intelligence Co. from proficiency training in the field.

In an area behind PAVE PAWS on the southeastern end of base, three training stations were set up, each reflecting a core skill set maintained through the Army - land navigation, first aid and survival skills.

The 138th MI, a detachment of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, support the mission of the Air Force's Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System; they're one of a number of non-Air Force organizations at Robins.
