Aeromedical Evacuation: Flying Ambulances Flying ambulances: Aeromedical evacuation
The morning starts early with an alert about four hours before takeoff. Members of the 379th Expeditionary Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron begin several mandatory tasks before boarding the aircraft. Nurses go over mission details, as medical technicians pack more than a thousand pounds of equipment on a flatbed that is ready to load onto the plane. They must take all their usual gear including bandages, intravenous fluid, regulators, defibrillators, suction units and various other pieces of medical equipment. They take these supplies partially as a precaution, as they don’t know what they may need to keep patients stable in the air above the Middle East.

From Basic Training to Al Udeid, Two Air Force careers reunited after 21 years Basic Training to Al Udeid: Two Air Force careers reunited after 21 years

They were both a little scared and excited to become the U.S. Air Force’s newest Airmen. Though they grew up about 400 miles apart and spent six weeks together in the same flight at Basic Military Training, their Air Force journeys separated them after graduation by thousands of miles and trips around the world.
