They’ll work there as part of the 817th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron, which schedules, plans and carries out all the C-17 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Central Command area of responsibility.

They’re replacing airmen from McChord’s 10th Airlift Squadron, who are due home Nov. 7.
