GettysburgFighting broke out once again on the frontlines of Gettysburg. However, it wasn't the battle sounds of cannons and muskets being fired from the Union and Confederate Armies that were heard, but it was the sound of overgrown brush being pulled from the ground and the sound of a rotting fence being torn down in a battle that pitted Airmen against Mother Nature.

By partnering with the 621st Contingency Response Wing from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, a C-17 Globemaster III crew consisting of three pilots and two loadmasters were able to conduct multiple touch and goes and short landing operations on an assault air strip Sept. 24, 2014 at Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia.
