  1. They can also be used to transport medical evacuees from our military bases around the globe. I accompanied my husband when he was evacuated from Germany. Make sure to bring a good pair of ear plugs.

  4. I severed in the Air Force ’71-’75 as aircraft mechanic and assigned to C-130s. stationed at Elmendorf AFB Anchorage, AL Most supported the radar sites along the Aleution Chain. We had a few with skis and had temporary duty in Sondrestrom Greenland. We had two radar sites on the ice cape and fly supplies to them nearly ever day. Heck of a plane, land on short runways or ice.
