Total Force airlift delivering in Afghanistan

Staff Sgt. Derick Clements, a C-17 Globemaster III loadmaster assigned to 816nd Expeditionary Airlift Squadron in Southwest Asia, prepares the C-17 to transport human remains, April 20, at Camp Bastion, Afghanistan. "We hang the flag and carry human remains home with the ultimate respect," said Clemons, deployed from Charleston AFB, S.C. "It is not a mission we enjoy doing at all, but we are honored when we get the chance to take patriots who paid the ultimate sacrifice back to their families. These people served their country with valor and it is a pleasure to part of an airlift operation that remembers and takes care of our fallen warriors."
