124th Wing successfully completed Exercise Gemstone Warrior

By Joachim Jacob, Warthog News Editor

During the last couple of days, 124th Wing Public Affairs released a lot of new pictures on their unique website The Beacon Live. Those pictures (at least 24) are related to their newest exercise.

Note: Pictured is A-10C 78-0618 from the 190th Fighter Squadron.

Please note: Following the 124th Wing on the web isn't easy since they established The Beacon Live as a website in addition to their regular website. The problem: They doesnt further update their regular website, and the full content of The Beacon Live is RESTRICTED only to 124th wing members and other military people. Because of that, I try to make screenshots of their released photos. At least from my viewpoint: I don't like this RESTRICTED public affairs publicity doing by 124th Wing staff. That's not a good idea, and it's 100 % in contrast to most of all other current A-10C units which are online with websites and associated Facebook pages. BTW: It's stressful to copy their pictures, save them, and publish them again. I would like to get all related hi-res shots on their regular website.
