Sword & Shield gives you an up close and personal view of some of the US Military’s fastest, most powerful, precise and elite personnel and machinery. It will put you in virtual training as if you were the one in the cockpit flying an F-15 fighter jet, on an aircraft carrier navigating a 170 mph takeoff, 1,000 feet below the sea in a submarine nearing enemy territory or jumping from a C-17 aircraft 1,250 feet in the air. It’s a rare and exciting glimpse into the lives of the men and women who protect us. In the air, on the land, and across the sea. Soldiers of the U.S. Armed Forces demonstrate their skills, technology, and fighting spirit.
