FARP: Night Owls of USSOCOM

Master Sgt. James Albanesi, the team chief for the forward area refueling point program with the 1st Special Operations Logistics Readiness Squadron, assists a student as they anchor a fuel hose during a class demonstration at Hurlburt Field, Fla., Jan. 10, 2017. A fuel hose is anchored by Airmen to ensure little movement while a squeegee, a metal tool with two rolling pin like devices, is used to push residual fuel back into an aircraft to save space and reduce risk of leaks or spillage. The FARP program is a United States Special Operations Command initiative that trains petroleum, oils and lubrication Airmen to perform covert, nighttime refueling operations in deployed locations where fueling points are not accessible or when air-to-air refueling is not possible.
