Video: Hawaii Air National Guard Tankers Deploy to Support Operation Inherent Resolve

From DVIDS February 10, 2016

More than 50 members of the Hawaii Air National Guard, based at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam have deployed to Southwest Asia to join the 18-Nation air coalition in the fight against ISIS.

Three KC-135 Stratotankers belonging to the 203rd Air Refueling Squadron, along with flight and maintenance crews and other support personnel, left JB PH-H this weekend for Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar. The HIANG Airmen will be deployed for four months as part of an Air Expeditionary Force rotation. 

The unit has deployed to the U.S. Central Command (US CENTCOM)  Area of Responsibility numerous times.   The crew members are well versed in aerial refueling missions that make it possible to extend the range and persistence of Coalition air operations in Iraq and Syria, enabling U.S. and other Coalition aircraft to maintain a 24/7 presence over areas Isis operates in, holding targets they value at risk.
