AN-NAJAF, Iraq -- Air Force Maj. Chris Gay poses with the 60 boxes of clothing to be handed out to Iraqi children at the Al-Manathera Internally Displaced Persons Camp near the city of Al-Najaf during a mission Feb. 2. The major’s family, friends and co-workers living in three states collected more than 1,300 pounds of clothing and shoes to help hundreds of children at the camp. The camp is the largest of eight scattered across Iraqi and houses more than 2,500 Iraqis, including 205 school-age children. These families fled their homes following years of sectarian and terrorist violence. The major, a division chief with the 507th Aircraft Sustainment Squadron at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, is currently deployed with a U.S. Army unit based in Baghdad. U.S. Army photo
