DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable with Air Force Lt. Col. Edward "Hertz" Vaughan, commander, 13th Expeditionary Support Squadron and deputy commander, 13th Air Expeditionary Group Joint Task Force - Support Forces Antarctica McMurdo Station, Antarctica. He will discuss the support the Department of Defense provides to the National Science Foundation's research and exploration in Antarctica. The support JTF-SFA provides to the National Science Foundation's research and exploration in Antarctica is known as Operation Deep Freeze. ODF is unlike any other U.S. military operation. It is possibly the military's most difficult peacetime mission due to the harsh Antarctic environment. The U.S. military is uniquely equipped and trained to operate in such an austere environment and has provided support to the U.S. Antarctic Program since 1955.
