Troops conduct biannual 'ammo barge' mission in Alaska
The first load of the ammunition barge arrives at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, April 15, 2015. Contracted forklift operators use their skills to unload each container, which weighs between 20,000 and 40,000 pounds. After the items are offloaded from the trucks, the ammunition inspection team standing by opens the containers and inspects the ammunition before storing it in earth-covered bunkers.
