Rwandan soldiers exit a C-17 Globemaster III based out of Joint Base Lewis McChord, Wash. in the Central African Republic with a refugee camp 100 yards away full of displaced locals due to fighting Jan. 19. U.S. forces will transport approximately 850 Rwandan soldiers and more than 1,000 tons of equipment into the Central African Republic to aid French and African Union operations against militants during this three week-long operation.
