This photo of the Task Force Liberty ground transportation team represents all Airmen who overcame unique challenges in support of Operation Allies Welcome. The ground transportation team transported an average of 440 members of Task Force Liberty over a thousand miles every day in support of Operation Allies Welcome both in and out of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, during the month of September. Throughout that month, this 59-person operation – which included at least two members of the 137th Special Operations Wing, Oklahoma Air National Guard – had moved 1.8 million pounds of cargo and a total of 13.2 thousand. The Department of Defense, through U.S. Northern Command, and in support of the Department of Homeland Security, is providing transportation, temporary housing, medical screening, and general support for at least 50,000 Afghan evacuees at suitable facilities, in permanent or temporary structures, as quickly as possible. This initiative provides Afghan personnel essential support at secure locations outside Afghanistan. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Brigette Waltermire)
