Medical team treats nearly 1,500 African patients

Capt. Christie Barton examines a Rwandan woman during a medical capabilities mission that five medics from around the U.S. European Command participated in recently. The group from Aviano Air Base, Italy, and Ramstein AB, Germany, performed eye and dental exams for nearly 1,500 people, and in conjunction with the Rwandan Military Defense Force and the International Red Cross, they held medical seminars for 50 local doctors as part of the two-week military-to-military operation. Barton is an optometrist from the 435th Medical Group at Ramstein AB. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Chad Padgett)
