Jalalabad, Afghanistan-? The soldiers in the field have a lot to be thankful for, this holiday season, but more than anything they can know that if they are injured, that they have some of the finest Air medic emergency crews standing by to fix them up.
The medevac helicopters work to support the Servicemembers in the field, the different patrols and coalition missions are successful, but occasionally there are casualties. When they do get injured they know they can rely on swift assistance, and transportation to the Coalition and military Service hospitals.
Members of the Air Medevac crews are qualified not only as paramedics, but also as soldiers. They are some of the finest soldiers and when the chips are down, they are the first ones on the scene. They stabilize your condition, and transport you to hospital as fast as they can. You can be assured that your best chance is contained with the medevac crewmembers.
The Air crews and medevac personnel that operate in Afghanistan work cooperatively to support the boots on the ground, and there are many different situations where because of their swift intervention soldiers are able to travel home in a plane seat rather than in a black plastic body bag.
