Humanitarian Relief to Nicaragua

Loadmasters with the 439th Airlift Wing secure a 1982 Mack fire truck onto a C-5B Galaxy at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst N.J., on August 12, 2016. The truck will be flown to Managua, Nicaragua. Master Sgt. Jorge A. Narvaez, a traditional New Jersey Air National Guardsman with the 108th Security Forces Squadron, was instrumental in getting the truck donated to a group of volunteer firefighters in Managua. The truck donation is done through the Denton Program, which allows U.S. citizens and organizations to use space available on military cargo aircraft to transport humanitarian goods to countries in need. The 439th is located at Westover Air Reserve Base, Mass.
