Making a difference, one fire truck at a time

Master Sgt. Patrick J. Applegate, 108th Wing Traffic Management Office, New Jersey Air National Guard, positions a piece of plywood prior to nailing it for a shoring ramp that will be used to load a 1982 Mack 1250 GPM pumper fire truck on to a C-5 Galaxy at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., June 30, 2016. The fire truck is being donated to a group of volunteer firefighters in Managua, Nicaragua through the Denton Program, which allows U.S. citizens and organizations to use space available on military cargo aircraft to transport humanitarian goods to countries in need.
