Charleston AFB Loads Mine Vehicles for Iraq

The story is from ABC News 4,:

Charleston - Troops fighting the war in Iraq are about to get more
protection on the front lines. That's because crews at the Charleston Air Force
Base just finished loading Mine Resistant Ambush Protection Vehicles onto a
plane for delivery...Force Protection in Ladson got the marching orders to make
more. Packing them up, and flying them over into combat are Airmen with the
437th Airlift Wing.

It's amazing how this company began from almost nothing at the start of the War on Terror, to become the country's biggest supplier of mine resistant vehicles for our troops.
