The C-17 transported troops and equipment to forward operating locations throughout the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel and NATO Resolute Support missions. The C-17 is not only proficient in transporting troops and cargo, but can perform tactical airlift and airdrop missions and transport ambulatory patients during aeromedical evacuations.
