How does someone prepare themselves for a 4-day operation, where they are on the go, but must remain vigilant and clear-headed to deliver airpower onto the battlefield...with limited sleep? The answer isn’t simple and likely has something to do with years of training, but at the 24th Special Operations Wing, operators also have a team of more than 40 human performance providers in their arsenal, working to prepare, mold, and enhance the strength, conditioning, and performance of these Airmen through various programs.
As space continues to play an increasingly critical role in our nation’s defense, the need for the space medicine specialty grows. Medical Airmen within U.S. Air Force Space Command are making sure space operators are ready for future readiness requirements.
Throughout out a week-long medical readiness training exercise, 30 Airmen from the 189th Airlift Wing and 188th Wing treated more than 2,000 patients. While that number is a feat in and of itself, one Airman used his knowledge to support the local community in a different way.
Achievements in aerospace medical capabilities and advances in aeromedical evacuation have transformed the Air Force Medical Service into a world-class operation for service members ill or injured in wartime. See the major milestones throughout the evolution of aeromedical evacuation and the impact each has made in advancing wartime medicine and caring for patients.
The U.S. Air Force fights from the flight line. Air Force medical professionals work with Airmen at home station and deployed locations to ensure forces are medically fit, cleared, and equipped to support Air Force and Combatant Commands’ missions.
