KADENA AIR BASE, Japan -- An Air Force C-130 Hercules prepares for takeoff after being loaded with two aircraft pallets of packaged meals bound for Southeast Asia as part of disaster relief following the a 9.0-magnitude earthquake that struck Dec.26 off the coast of Indonesia.  The quake caused tsunami waves that have affected 12 countries and have killed more than 100,000 people.  More than 3,000 cases of meals and four aircraft pallets of fresh water were processed through the cargo area here Dec. 29.  The 18th Wing is providing relief supplies and personnel to help with the humanitarian effort.  (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech.
