Ramstein, Germany Air Base focal point for moving troops and supplies in and out of Afghanistan

FOX News out of St. Louis reporting from Ramstein, Germany.

Ramstein Air Base in Germany is the focal point when it comes to moving troops and supplies in and out of Afghanistan. Captain Joel Allen is with the Air Mobility Command which is headquartered at Scott Air Force Base. Allen said, “We have a very dynamic mission at Ramstein Air base.” 245,000 passengers move through here a year. While one group of troops is finally going home from Afghanistan another is heading down range, the war is not over yet.

The job of drawing down all happens while bullets are still flying. Major General Tim Zadalis added, “Combat operations are ongoing so we are bringing everybody and everything home in the midst of combat operations”
