Air Mobility Command commander visits Kentucky Air Guard

Gen. Raymond Johns (left), commander of Air Mobility Command, listens to a briefing on the 123rd Airlift Wing Initial Response Hub concept from Col. Greg Nelson, wing commander, during a tour of the Kentucky Air Guard Base in Louisville, Ky., Dec. 19, 2011. Under the concept, the wing would deploy all the assets necessary to establish an airlift hub at a remote location within hours of a natural disaster or enemy attack, enabling relief supplies to flow in and medical evacuees to flow out. The 123rd Airlift Wing is the only unit in the U.S. military with all the necessary capabilities, housed in a single location, and the aircraft to transport them on short notice.
