PALLETS OF MEALS
U.S. Air Force airmen push pallets of halal meals onto a C-130H aircraft at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, Aug. 1, 2010. The humanitarian aid meals, prepared according to Islamic tradition, will be delivered to Pakistan as part of a humanitarian relief mission. Monsoon floods brought on by torrential rains have devastated hundreds of thousands in Pakistan. The aircrew, assigned to the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing, is part of an Air National Guard Unit deployed from Peoria, Ill.
