Porters move cargo to right place at right time

JOINT BASE BALAD, Iraq -- Airmen 1st Class Shane Costa (left) and Dennis Gaxiola, push a palette train off a 60k-loader driven by Senior Airman Derek Dumlao onto a high line dock here Aug. 24. All three Airmen completed a new Air Force Reserve seasoning training program prior to deploying here. The program allows Airmen to voluntarily remain on active duty for upgrade training, finishing it in three months instead of 14 to 16 months. Dumlao, Gaxiola and Costa, aerial porters with the 332nd Expeditionary Logistics Readiness Squadron here, are deployed from the 624th Regional Support Group at Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii. All three Airmen graduated from Leilehua High School in Wahiawa, Hawaii, in 2004. (U.S. Air Force photo/Airman 1st Class Jason Epley)
