I wasn't aware that the C-32 has any additional fuel tanks, although its range is said to be 5,500nm. Nevertheless she has to make a fuel stop in order to cover the the roughly 6,000nm from to ADW to HND.

The standard fuel stop would be at Elmendorf. But, yes, the USAF C-32As (equipped with P&W engines) have additional fuel tanks giving them more range than the standard B-757-200. I believe that USAF also had additional fuel tanks added to the C-32Bs (equipped with RR engines) they bought used.
