An 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade AH-64D Apache Longbow prepares to land during a Joint Operation Access Exercise, live-fire mission, Fort Bragg, N.C., June 28, 2013. JOAX is a seven-day integrated effort between the 82nd Airborne Division and its Air Force partners. JOAX synchronizes the planning and execution of a large-scale forcible entry into a hostile area; securing sufficient freedom of movement while facing anti-access and area-denial capabilities of our enemy. This unified training brings together two Infantry Brigade Combat Teams, six Air Force Wings, support elements from Fires and Aviation Brigades and other enablers along with the Division headquarters in order to prove the force multiplying value of joint operations.
