2018 Air Force Defender Challenge
Fourteen Security Forces teams from U.S. Air Force major commands, Great Britain and Germany will be testing their skills in realistic weapons scenarios, simulated dismounted operations and grueling combat endurance events as part of the 2018 Air Force Defender Challenge, to be held Sept. 10-13 at Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis, Texas.
The team with the most combined points wins the coveted Defender Challenge Championship Trophy. Great Britain has held the trophy since winning it at the last Defender Challenge in 2004.
The event, which has been on a 14-year hiatus, traces its lineage back more than 37 years when Headquarters Air Force Office of Security Police first held the world-wide defender's competition.
