Air Force Reserve strengthens a ready medical force

Maj. Robert Simmons (left), a reserve Medical Service Corps officer with the 45th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., received a Citizen Appreciation Award on Oct. 19, 2017 from the Tampa Police Department Interim Chief Brian Dugan (right) for his response to a traffic accident and his subsequent life-saving actions. In July 2017, having just finished his monthly reserve training and leaving the base, Simmons witnessed a car accident that left one driver severely wounded as a result of an impaled object. Simmons was able to quickly secure the scene and administer life-saving care to the driver. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Peter Dean)
