Faster, Better, Stronger: Iwakuni MWSS-171 receives renewed equipment

Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni

U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Matthew Hamelers, a heavy equipment operator with Marine Wing Support Squadron 171, perfoms quality checks on a MAC-50 military all terrain crane at the harbor of Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, on Sep. 27, 2021. Equipment from MWSS-171 was recently refurbished and traveled via ship for its return to the air station. The MCAS Iwakuni port facility has a long history of usage to benefit the U.S.-Japan alliance, from the offload of JSDF aircraft to the delivery of humanitarian aid and disaster assistance in Japan’s times of need.
