The 386th Air Expeditionary Wing Public Affairs Office has posted a three-part series, titled “Combat Truckers,” on Air Force 2T1 vehicle operators and Airmen who work together in the 586th Expeditionary Logistics Readiness Squadron on line haul missions throughout Iraq.

Part One, “We Haul Ours to Save Yours,” shows how the vehicles haul over 1.75 million short tons of equipment, vehicles, supplies and other materials throughout Iraq in support of military forces.

Part Two, “Airmen Make History One Mile at a Time” speaks of the role played by the 268 women who are part of the unit.

Part Three, “Airmen support OIF ground convoy missions,” talks of the work done by the Airmen who support the work done on the ground—receiving and tracking missions, serving as a liaison between the Army and convoy teams and making sure everyone is up-to-date.

A video is also posted that presents members of the unit and shows the Airmen in action.
