55th APS

TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- It's not every day Travis aerial porters handle cargo like a howitzer. Feb. 3, they loaded two of them, as well as eight cargo pallets, onto a C-5. Here, in a delicate balancing and rolling maneuver, (from the left) Senior Amn. Matt Branstetter, Airman 1st Class Charles Laas, 2nd Lt. Justin Johnson and A1C Lauralee McMillan, move the first howitzer from the 60k loader into the aircraft. Branstetter, Laas and McMillan are all with the 60th Aerial Port Squadron. Johnson graduated with 2 Lts. Robert Schroeder and Jeff Barney from the Logistics Readiness Officers School, recently. Johnson is with the 349th AMW's 55th Aerial Port Squadron.
