  • 433rd Airlift Wing Public Affairs

The 433rd Airlift Wing hosted veterans from the Camino Real Community Service June 30 here. The group of veterans had a combined 50 years of military service with members from the Vietnam and Gulf wars. The veterans toured the C-5M Super Galax by viewing the cargo compartment, the flight deck where they sat in the pilot chair and the flight crew berthing areas.

Many of the veterans were shocked at the size of the aircraft.  

 "Its really interesting, I had seen them flying in the sky," said Martin Llamas a Vietnam veteran. "I was just so surprised at how large this aircraft is, that really stood out to me."

CRCS is a veteran friendly and veteran informed agency that uses "peer to peer" support to service veterans and their families.
