Lexington, KY – U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Antonio D. Travis helped co-ordinate the relief efforts in the early hours after the January 12th Haitian earthquake. Sergeant Travis led a tactical team to secure the international airport in Port Au Prince so that planes carrying badly needed humanitarian aid could safely land there. It's estimated that at the height of the crisis, Sergeant Travis's Unit handled up to 250 aircraft per day without incident. In testimony before Congress earlier this year, Travis described the makeshift air traffic control center as a "card table set up next to the runway." The Time Magazine issue, with Sergeant Travis's profile, hits newsstands Friday.
