Globemaster.  Capable of refueling in flight and operating at low level to

forward operating bases in combat zones, the C-17 provides our nation

unparalleled access to global hotspots in a matter of hours. Whether

delivering supplies and ammunition to warfighters, evacuating patients to

life-saving care, or enabling State agencies to respond to disasters, the
