NEO drill enhances base readiness

Airmen, families and civilian employees assigned to the 31st Fighter Wing participate in a Noncombatant Evacuation Operations drill at Aviano Air Base, Italy, Oct. 25, 2021. A NEO is the ordered or authorized departure of civilian noncombatant and nonessential military personnel from danger in an overseas country to a designated safe haven. During the exercise, 25 U.S. civilian employees and military spouses acted as “evacuees” and were processed through the personnel processing center. (Courtesy Photo by 1st Lt. Melissa Carpenter)
