Master Sgt. Melissa Sparks, Air Mobility Command commander’s battle staff medical representative, coordinates daily operations from the CBS in support of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., April 15, 2020. Since its activation on March 4, the AMC CBS has served as a single, 24/7 cell of experts to ensure uninterrupted rapid global mobility amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, producing more than 40 battle staff directives to guide Airmen on everything from aircraft decontamination to patient movement to timely reporting of COVID-19 cases at AMC installations.
