Under Santa’s watch: C-17 delivers fuel to remote bases in Afghanistan

Santa Claus, helped by the unseen Tech. Sgt. Mike Morris, of Charleston AFB, S.C., pushes a pallet of fuel onto a C-17 Globemaster III prior to a mission here Dec. 23, 2011. Some 40 pallets of fuel were air-dropped in this operation to remote forward operating bases in Afghanistan. The fuel will be used for generators, heaters and vehicles.
