154th Logistics Readiness Squadron Airmen continue logistics support in D.C.

March 3, 2021

Tech. Sgt. Jose Molestina, Staff Sgt. Daniel Buss, Senior Airman Nainoa Kahauolopua, Chief Master Sgt. Edward Tang, and Tech. Sgt. Garrick Ferreira, all Hawaii Air National Guard members who augmented the 113th Logistics Readiness Squadron’s Ground Transportation Flight, gather February 19, 2021, while supporting Operation Capitol Response in Washington D.C. The Airmen initially relocated to support this year’s presidential inauguration and provided 24/7 transportation capabilities for thousands of follow-on service members to ensure a peaceful transfer of power. The team has continued to support the 113th Wing at Joint Base Andrews to assist with regular movements of forces and supplies.

Shout out to our incredible Ground Transportation Team from the 154th Logistics Readiness Squadron (154 LRS), who are continuing more than two months of support in the District of Columbia!

Over the past two months, this small team has been instrumental in assisting thousands of National Guard Airmen and Soldiers who rely on logistics to get the job done.

These vehicle operators and mechanics have been working around-the-clock, out of Joint Base Andrews, all while facing obstacles such as iced-in vehicles, constant road closures, heightened force protection measures a nonstop influx of passengers and supplies, and successfully staying safe during a global pandemic.

While the natural elements in D.C. are nothing like Hawaii, it is going to take a lot more than that to slow this team of dedicated Airmen down!
