Total force effort ensures successful typhoon evacuation

More than 125 Department of Defense members and contractors in-process at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, July 15, 2015, after evacuation from Wake Island in preparation for potential surges caused by Typhoon Halola. The evacuees were transported aboard a C-17 Globemaster III assigned to the Hawaii Air National Guard from Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, in coordination with the 613th Air Operations Center at JBPHH and the Pacific Air Forces Regional Support Center at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. The DoD personnel are part of the PRSC and 11th Air Force mission on Wake Island, which is a strategic location within the Pacific and also a divert airfield for overseas flights.
