President Barack Obama proclaimed Friday, May 15, 2015, as National Defense Transportation Day and May 10 through May 16, 2015, as National Transportation Week. In the proclamation, he calls upon all Americans “to recognize the importance of our Nation’s transportation infrastructure and to acknowledge the contributions of those who build, operate, and maintain it.” We salute Team March members who take part in that transportation mission. Team March Airmen and members from an elite 57-person team, known as the Urban Search and Rescue Task Force 2 (CA-TF2), load equipment on a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft at March ARB, Calif., April 26, 2015. The CA-TF2 team, sponsored by the Los Angeles County Fire Department, Calif., was activated by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance on Sunday to deploy to Nepal in support of earthquake emergency rescue operations.
