Experiences as a Military Pilot in the Middle East

Longmont Native, air force national guard, commercial pilot.

Jeremy Atherton is a pilot and Major for the Wyoming National Air Guard flying the C-130 as an aircraft commander (and former active duty Air Force Major). He is trained to fly cargo, airdrop cargo, and people, and is a pilot for the MAFFS program, which is a forest firefighting unit of the Wyoming National Guard. 
 
Here is a short video about the MAFFs firefighting mission: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQM512rDaGQ
 
He has been deployed several times to the middle east in support of the war on terror and actually flew the Bombardier E-11A in Afghanistan (part of the Battlefield Airborne Communications program https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlefield_Airborne_Communications_Node). If you ever saw the movie Lone Survivor with Mark Wahlberg you would understand the difficulties of communication in the remote mountains of Afghanistan. The E-11A helps to fix those issues by flying at high altitudes and providing coverage to troops and special ops on the ground. The E-11A is actually a retrofitted commercial and civilian plane so the USAF sent him to get his commercial pilots license before deploying.

WorldDenver

Mission & History : Who We Are : WorldDenver

Matt oversees all of WorldDenver's international exchange and education programs, including the International Visitor Leadership Program, World Affairs Challenge (Classic, Intramural & Virtual Exchange iterations of the program), Citizen Diplomat Excursions, and other youth, professional, corporate, and fee-for-service/custom exchange programs.

Prior to joining WorldDenver in 2017, Matt served as a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Department of State. He also worked as a Health Education Volunteer with the US Peace Corps and as a volunteer with the Rio 2016 Olympics. His 12+ years of living abroad (United Kingdom, Mauritania, Papua New Guinea, El Salvador, Burundi & Brazil) make him feel right at home with WorldDenver members and fellow "citizen diplomats" working to build bridges that span cultural, linguistic, and geographic divides in our increasingly globalized world.

Matt graduated from the University of Tulsa and speaks French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Swedish (as well as a smattering of Tok Pisin and Hassaniya, but you would be hard-pressed to find individuals who understand either of those languages!). Outside of the office, he enjoys spending time with his family, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, gardening, beekeeping, and playing board games.
