Marines deploy Ospreys to Support Ebola Fight in West Africa




Marines deploy Ospreys to Support Ebola Fight in West Africa

An MV-22B Osprey from VMM-265 receives fuel from a KC-130J Super Hercules refueling aircraft during training.



US Marine Corps, October 08, 2014 - Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response Africa based in Moron, Spain is deploying 4 MV-22B Ospreys and 2 KC-130 Hercules to Liberia to join the fight against Ebola.

The aircraft will depart today, spend the night in Senegal and continue on to the Liberian capital of Monrovia.

They will provide interim resupply and transportation support for a few weeks until a 3,000 strong US Army unit arrives later this month to assume the mission in the longer term.

About 350 U.S. military personnel are now in Liberia.

Pentagon officials emphasize that troops will not provide medical care to, or have direct contact with, individuals infected with Ebola.

The U.S. military mission is to support civilian health care efforts through construction of new facilities, providing logistics support and training locals in prevention methods.
