An MC-130H Combat Talon II from the 1st Special Operations Squadron was training in Korea when it was retasked to support humanitarian relief efforts here March 20.

The crew quickly flew here to receive its new mission -- to transport three fuel bladders to Sendai Air Port and a pallet of food Matsushima Air Base.

About 160 Airmen from the 353rd Special Operations Group are currently deployed here supporting Operation Tomodachi.
