Beale AFB hosts post-blast training with FBI and local law enforcement


BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, California — The 9th Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal flight hosted a training event with the FBI and several local law enforcement agencies May 5, 2021, at Beale Air Force Base, California.
