The Denton Program

Our Mission of Love humanitarian cargo delivery is made possible by the Denton Cargo Program.

The Denton Amendment, Title 10 U.S.C. Section 402, states "the Secretary of Defense may transport to any country, without charge, supplies which have been furnished by a non-governmental source and which are intended for humanitarian assistance. Such supplies may be transported only on a space available basis."

Cargo is moved through the Defense Transportation System on a space-available basis by air, surface, sea or an inter-modal combination thereof. The cargo is defined as opportune by the DTS regulations.  Any U.S. military organization or coalition partner can participate. Primary transportation has been provided by Air Mobility Command channel missions.

The Mission of Love has had over 60 Denton airlifts and is the largest user of the Denton Program in the United States.  Aid has been sent by our Mission of Love to Afghanistan, Bahamas, Belize, Bosnia, Columbia, Croatia, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, Nepal, Peru, Puerto Rico, Sri Lanka, Tibet, and Pine Ridge Native American Indian Reservation, S.D.

On May 27th of 2016, I was fortunate enough to participate as a C5 Flight Engineer in an Air Force Denton Humanitarian Mission to Guatemala City and meet Bob and Kathleen Price, founder and director of the Mission of Love Foundation. The Denton Program is a DOD transportation program that moves humanitarian cargo donated by NGOs to developing nations to ease human suffering. The Mission of Love Foundation is the largest user of the Denton Program in the world.     more.......

I just wanted to touch base to say it was a true pleasure to meet both of you this week in Guatemala.  The news story we did was the lead story on the Air Force's web site yesterday and the lead story on the Air Force Reserve's site.  Here are the link to the story.  Thank you.

Subject: 910th AW Denton Group

I’m the big bald guy you see assisting the 76 APS with the Denton Group, and the Project Manager for Eagle Aviation Services, and Technologies (EAST), O&M, LLC. The EAST O&M, LLC Traffic Management team provide aircraft loading, aircraft pallet build-up, inspection of cargo prior to upload, and cargo manifesting assistance to 76 APS personnel. Our carpenters are building the shoring kit for the Ford Carpenter Bus to be safely loaded onto the aircraft for the Mission of Love to Guatemala on February 2, 2013. My team and I are very proud to support Mission of Love as well as our 76 APS personnel! Without the assistance of the EAST O&M, LLC team, MSgt Kevin Massie would have a difficult time getting  these missions off the ground. We are looking forward to providing our support to many more missions of love. Just thought you should know who else is assisting you with these missions.
Thank you.
