Senior Airman Michael Reyes and Airman 1st Class Jason Somrak, both of the 379th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, 340th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, pull and push an auxiliary power cart out of the way, so a KC-135 Stratotanker has a clear path to taxi from the ramp here at this undisclosed air base in Southwest Asia. The KC-135 provides aerial refueling support to Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and allied nation aircraft engaged in Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom and Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa. Airman Reyes is a native of Temecula, Calif., and Airman Somrak hails from Colfax, La. Both are deployed from McConnell Air Force Base, Kan.
