Displaced Filipinos and other international personnel offload from a C-17 Globemaster III with the 535th Air Lift Squadron out of Hickam Field, Honolulu, HI, after leaving Tacloban Air Field, Nov. 15. The supply drop-off and personnel loading was the first use of the C-17 during Operation Damayan, able to carry significantly more supplies and displaced persons than the C-130 Hercules aircraft currently being utilized. To date, the multi-national force has delivered more than 623,000 pounds of relief aid. The 3rd MEB is currently supporting the Armed Forces of the Philippines in providing humanitarian aid and disaster relief to areas affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda.
