Logistics Marines assist infantry with resupply by air

Lance Cpl. Luis Bustillos (left), from San Diego, and Lance Cpl. Heather Armstrong, from Durant, Okla., landing support specialist Marines from Combat Logistics Battalion 4, 1st Marine Logistics Group (Forward), latch 9,000-pounds of supplies to the hook of a CH-53E Super Stallion from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 466, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), April 24, 2012. Lance Cpl. Andrew Jones, also a landing support specialist, watches to make sure everything is done safely. The resupply of ammunition, food, and water is for Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, who are fighting in the mountains of Helmand province. For Marines in remote locations, resupplies by air are faster, safer and easier than by ground.
