US Airmen with the 22nd Airlift Squadron at Travis AFB, California, and members of the 303rd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron deployed from Kadena AB, Japan, unload one of three HH-60G helicopters from a C-5B Galaxy aircraft at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, on 25 January 2013. The 303rd ERQS replaced Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 464 (HMH-464), which held the rescue tasking in Djibouti for ten years. The arrival of the 303rd ERQS will better equip Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa for personnel recovery because of the helicopters' capabilities.
