Marines with Marine Wing Support Squadron 373, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), work alongside local nationals to create a runway, capable of hosting the KC130-J Hercules at Forward Operating Base Delaram II, Afghanistan, Nov. 7. With the ability to resupply units here via aircraft, a significant burden will be lifted from the number of convoys traveling from other ISAF locations and reduce the threat of improvised explosive devices and other hostile activities on the ground.
