WHAT IS THE 24-HR TACP CHALLENGE?
Hosted by TACP units across the world, in support of the TACP Association, the 24-Hour TACP Challenge raises awareness through physical activity designed to challenge the body and mind. The event raises awareness and funding for members of the TACP community.

What is a TACP? Few actions can change the course of battle like a properly executed air strike. As members of the Air Force Special Operations, Tactical Air Control Party (TACP), specialists embed with Army and Marine units on the frontline with the incredible responsibility of calling in air strikes on the right target at the right time. These highly trained experts go through intense physical, mental, and technical training to withstand the demanding conditions of battle and provide their team with the firepower needed for continued success on the battlefield.
