U.S. Army Sgt. Zachary J. Champagne, a helicopter crew chief with Joint Task Force - Leeward Islands, peers out of the window of a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter as it flies over the Caribbean Sea toward the port of Roseau, Dominica, to deliver water to people affected by Hurricane Maria, Oct. 1, 2017. At the request of the U.S. Agency for International Development, JTF-LI has deployed aircraft and service members to assist in delivering relief supplies to Dominica in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The task force is a U.S. military unit composed of Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen, and represents U.S. Southern Command’s primary response to the hurricanes that have affected the eastern Caribbean.
