The Coalition's largest and busiest logistics base, Bagram Air Field, supports Operations in Afghanistan, though it is taxed. Coalition officials are bridging gaps and relieving stress on Bagram by adding strategic landing strips that can handle the Air Force's strategic heavy lifter, the C-17. Marine Staff Sgt. Jeremy Vought reports from Logar Province, Afghanistan where Globemasters are landing for the first time. Sound bites include Maj. Ashley Thames, Brigade Aviation Officer, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, from Manchester, Tenn., Staff Sgt. Dave Cygon, FOB Shank Material Handling Equipment NCOIC, 9-19th Inland Cargo Transfer Co., Michigan and Capt. Jeremy Brockman, C-17 pilot, 817th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron. Produced by Staff Sgt. Jeremy Vought.
