SOTO CANO AIR BASE, Honduras (AFNS) -- A C-5 Galaxy delivered 23,415 pounds of humanitarian aid supplies to Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras, Nov. 9 through the Denton Program.

The 68th Airlift Squadron's C-5 traveled from Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, with stops at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, and Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, picking up 10 pallets of cargo consisting of medical supplies and equipment, clothing, donations and a tractor destined to Desarrollo Oropoli of Siguatepeque.

The Denton Program was created to allow private U.S. citizens and organizations to use space available on U.S. military cargo planes to transport humanitarian goods to countries in need.

The C-5 also delivered three pallets of supplies for use to maintain/fix equipment on Soto Cano AB and the Marines MH-53 helicopters.

Once at Soto Cano, members from the 612th Air Base Squadron unloaded the cargo. The 612th ABS provides air base support to Joint Task Force-Bravo and 12th Air Force (Air Forces Southern), covering air traffic control, logistics, base civil engineering, fire department, airfield operations and personnel functions.

Nongovernmental organizations will use these supplies to provide aid not only to Hondurans, but also to those in need all over Central America.
