Marines contribute to Operation Damayan with expeditionary refueling point

U.S. Marines refuel a KC-130J Super Hercules at the forward arming and refueling point Nov. 18 at Guiuan, Republic of the Philippines, in support of Operation Damayan. The FARP is an expeditionary refueling station, allowing aircraft a location to refuel locally. The capability allows the aircraft to carry more supplies and evacuate more people affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Due to relief efforts, more than 1,200 tons of relief supplies have been delivered and more than 10,000 people have been evacuated from the affected areas. The Marines are with Marine Wing Support Squadron 172, currently assigned to III Marine Expeditionary Brigade in support of Joint Task Force 505.
