What airline would a soldier use to fly from Kuwait to Atlanta?
MATS- Military Air Transport Service- part of the Air Force, and pronounced as a word.MATS operates troop transports, so to speak. it is true in the Vietnam war some commercial airliners were(drafted) into military service as Transports inthe Far East and these were still technically civil liners, not USAF planes. Braniff (now defunct) was one of the troop-transit carriers in the Vietnam conflict. MATS is still in service as it is part of the rapid-deployment strategy.
