Nellis Airman recognized as Angel of the Battlefield

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Linda M. Wilson, recipient of a 2018 Angel of the Battlefield award, stands onstage during the 2018 Armed Services YMCA Angels of the Battlefield Awards Gala in Arlington, Virginia, Oct. 2, 2018. Wilson risked her own life to save the lives of others during the deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada on Oct. 1, 2017. Despite the danger, Wilson flagged down numerous cars to transport wounded victims, obtained first-aid supplies and utilized those supplies in treating victims. When she ran out of medical supplies, Wilson directed the use of clothing for improvised tourniquets, and then loaded eight critically injured victims into a car, providing lifesaving treatment throughout the trip to the hospital.
