2003: A McChord AFB C-17 Globemaster III, flown by a crew assigned to the 315 AW (Reserve-Associate) at Charleston AFB returned former US Army prisoners of war to the US one week after their rescue in Iraq. A KC-135 and crew from the 157 AREFW at Pease ANGB, New Hampshire, refueled the C-17 on its trip from Ramstein AFB to the US.
