Cerre Dolby, C-130J aircraft commander, center, and 1st. Lt. Quinn Van Drew, first pilot, both assigned to the 36th Airlift Squadron, during Operation Christmas Drop flight Dec. 15, 2017, over the Pacific Ocean near Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. Every December, C-130 aircrews from Yokota Air Base head to Andersen AFB. From there, they deliver donated food, supplies, educational materials and toys to remote Pacific islands throughout the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas, Federated States of Micronesia, and Republic of Palau. These islands are some of the most remote locations on the globe spanning a distance nearly as broad as the continental U.S. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Alexander W. Riedel)
