303rd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron arrives, unloads helos

CAMP LEMONNIER, Djibouti (Jan. 25, 2013) -U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Justin Thomas, a loadmaster with the 22nd Airlift Squadron from Travis Air Force Base, Calif., works with his crew and members of the new 303rd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron to unload a HH-60 helicopter from a C-5 Galaxy.  The 303rd ERQS is replacing Heavy Marine Helicopter 464th Detachment A, the last of several Marine detachments that have handled the mission here in the past 10 years.  The arrival of the 303rd ERQS will better equip Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa for personnel recovery due to the HH-60's capabilities.  This is one more tool CJTF-HOA uses to be the preferred security partner of choice in an increasingly secure, stable, and developing East Africa.
