U.S. Army Maj. Nathan Gunter, left, and U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Jeremy Graham, both 497th Operations Support Squadron ground liaison officers, stand together for a photo May 13, 2019 at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia. In daily operations, U.S. Army ground liaison officers assist U.S. Air Force intelligence Airmen by translating Army operational and tactical terminology and graphics in operations orders to verbiage that Airmen can understand. Ultimately, the U.S. Army’s ground liaison mission creates a strategic enabler for senior leaders in multiple services. They serve as the air component’s touchpoint with the land component and help ensure a multi-domain perspective is applied when planning and executing air operations. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech.
