932nd Airlift Wing joins forces with Missouri Army Reserve unit to participate in a field condition medical training exercise

In June numerous members of the 932nd Airlift Wing worked together during a five-day joint training field exercise. Members of the 932nd Airlift Wing Medical Group, 932nd Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron and the Army Reserve 325th Combat Support Hospital (in Missouri) participated in the exercise at Scott Air Force Base. The purpose of the exercise was to coordinate each component used for medical care in a deployment setting, and simulate real world scenarios to give military service members the opportunity to use their training and equipment to provide immediate care to injured people on site. The 434th Air Refueling Wing at Grissom Air Reserve Base, Indiana, supplied a KC-135 and the 302nd Airlift Wing at Peterson Air Force Base, CO supplied a C-130 for patient transport scenarios during the exercise. " There is no way you can build a clear understanding of what you are doing in a real world mission without the muscle memory that comes from practice," said Maj. Carlton Abner a Medical Crew Director with the 932nd AES. "Any chance you get to play with other units or moving pieces, the better prepared you are for the real world." (U.S. Air Force Photo/Staff.
