The first baby formula “mercy flights” took off from Germany on Saturday for the United States.
The US is in such bad shape under Joe Biden we need Western “Mercy Flights” of baby formula to feed our infants here at home.
This is all because the Biden regime failed to act for months on this crisis.
U.S. troops in Ramstein, Germany are preparing 78k pounds of specialty infant formula for shipment to the United States tomorrow through Operation Fly Formula.

The Daily Mail reported;
Efforts to alleviate baby formula shortages saw 31 tons of baby food loaded onto a military aircraft on Saturday that’s now headed for Indiana.
President Biden’s Operation Fly Formula will see 132 pallets of the Nestle-manufactured powder arrive in the US later on Saturday.
It comes as multiple infants were admitted to hospitals across the US after suffering allergic reactions to homemade formula, with one pediatrician warning the crisis will only worsen.
The White House says 132 pallets of Nestlé Health Science Alfamino Infant and Alfamino Junior formula will leave Ramstein Air Base in Germany and arrive in the U.S. this weekend.
Another 114 pallets of Gerber Good Start Extensive HA formula are expected to arrive in the coming days.
‘These formulas have been prioritized because they serve a critical medical purpose and are in short supply in the United States because of the Abbott Sturgis plant closure,’ a White House official said.
Altogether about 1.5 million 8-ounce bottles of the three formulas, which are hypoallergenic for children with cow’s milk protein allergy, will arrive this week.
