The fifth mural depicts what could be considered the foundation or core of the Air Force Reserve - the Unit Training Assembly, more commonly known as “drill”. The Unit Training Assembly provides Air Force reservists the opportunity to train the way they fight so they can help support the Air Force mission. One weekend a month, reservists gather together with the unit members at their base to practice the job skills acquired during their initial technical training. The work performed during UTAs allows them to keep up to date and increase their expertise in their individual military professions. The training received during UTAs helps these Citizen Airmen remain fit to fight so they can serve their country when called upon, both at home and around the world. (U.S. Air Force Graphic by Capt.
