Honing joint medical skills

Early morning light comes through the tree tops woods as simulated "patients" await assistance from 932nd Medical Group members Sept. 10, 2017. Squadron cooperation was put into action as the 932nd Airlift Wing was highly engaged managing resources and improving the unit during the September Unit Training Assembly. Here, the 932nd Medical Squadron, Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron and Aeromedical Staging Squadron Airmen work together on first aid skills and C-130 load checks, with observation from U.S. Transportation Command guests. Multiple patient loads of litters were utilized to move people from the woods near the reserve wing, safely on to waiting buses, and then out to the aeromedical crew at the C-130 simulator. The action packed training started at 6:30 a.m., and was designed to lead people through practice, and execute any future medical missions, and was held at several locations around Scott Air Force Base. The project was spearheaded by Capt. Randy Scollan and featured joint patient training with Army, Marine, and Navy personnel. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col. Stan Paregien)
