Kentucky Air Guard joins with Army Rapid Port Opening Element for U.S. Transportation Command earthquake-response exercise

Army Spc. Brandon Glaspie and Army Pfc. Loura Wiggs of the U.S. 689th Army’s Rapid Port Opening Element in Fort Eustis, Va., direct the placement of a pallet of disaster-relief supplies onto a flat-bed truck at MidAmerica St. Louis Airport in Mascoutah, Ill., on Aug. 7, 2013, as part of Exercise Gateway Relief, a U.S. Transportation Command-directed earthquake-response scenario. The Soldiers were working at the forward node of a Joint Task Force-Port Opening, where relief supplies that arrive by air are staged for further movement over land by trucks. The Kentucky Air National Guard's 123rd Contingency Response Group operated the airlift side of the JTF-PO, known as an Aerial Port of Debarkation. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Maj. Dale Greer)
