Kentucky Air Guard deploys Initial Response Hub to Fort Campbell

Col. Greg Nelson (second from left), commander of the 123rd Airlift Wing, consults with members of the unit's Initial Response Hub team at Fort Campbell, Ky., during an earthquake-response exercise May 14, 2012. About 20 Airmen from the 123rd Contingency Response Group and 123rd Special Tactics Squadron deployed to Fort Campbell to demonstrate their preparedness for an initial response after a natural disaster. The Kentucky Air Guard's Initial Response Hub team is the first of its kind in the nation. No other unit in the U.S. military has the same breadth of capabilities housed in one unit, with the C-130 aircraft to permit immediate response.
