“School of Air Evacuation” celebrates 75th anniversary

A model of a Curtiss JN-4 “Jenny” hangs above the atrium in USAFSAM. The “Jenny” -- deemed as the first air ambulance -- was developed at the end of World War I when the U.S. Army recognized the need to air transport wounded soldiers. The “Jenny” was dedicated as part of the School of Air Evacuation’s 75th anniversary celebration. (U.S. Air Force photo by Rick Eldridge)
