U.S. Air Force Logistics Readiness Officer, Capt. Jack Hogue (right), 145th Logistics Readiness Squadron(LRS), speaks with Master Sgt. Patricia Haynes, 145th LRS, during a Cargo Deployment Function (CDF) exercise held at the North Carolina Air National Guard Base, Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Feb. 7, 2021. A CDF is similar to a personnel deployment line where you have a station to assemble items, check them for quality and to make sure they can safely be loaded onto an aircraft. Once the items are cleared to be loaded onto an aircraft, they reach the final phase of the CDF.
