CSAF thanks AMC for OIF success

SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. (USTCNS) --- Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. John P. Jumper sent the following letter to Gen. John W. Handy, commander of U.S. Transportation Command and Air Mobility Command, thanking the men and women of AMC for their support of Operation Iraqi Freedom:

Chief of Staff
United States Air Force

Dear General Handy

The men and women of Air Mobility Command performed superbly during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM. The world witnessed joint warfighting at its best and the critical role played by well-trained and well-led airmen.

When our nation needed airlift the most, AMC delivered with the historic airdrop of 1000 "Sky Soldiers" from the 173rd Airborne Brigade with a 100% mission success rate. Throughout the entire conflict execution was perfect and airmen from AMC made it look easy.

Please relay my sincere appreciation to all the members of your command. May God bless our great Air Force and our great nation!
