Senior Airman Kylie Hanni, left, and Airman 1st Class Jaime Suarez, right, both 36th Airlift Squadron loadmasters out of Yokota Air Base, Japan, verify their drop zone over the island of Nama, Federated States of Micronesia, during Operation Christmas Drop 2018, Dec. 10, 2018. The flight, carrying Commander, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, Adm. Phil Davidson and local leaders from the FSM, gave the passengers a firsthand experience into how the aircrews that attend OCD execute the mission. While aboard, Davidson stressed the importance of OCD, a trilateral operation between the U.S. Air Force, Japan Air Self-Defense Force (Koku Jietai), and the Royal Australian Air Force, plays in maintaining the mutual security in the Pacific island chain.
