  • The Air Force is protecting Airmen while protecting the nation

    How do you stand “shoulder to shoulder” in a time of COVID-19? For the United States Air and Space Forces, and indeed the entire United States military, this is no small question.

  • USAF medics maintain proficiency through practice, persistence & partnerships

    The Air Force accomplished an unprecedented mission in August 2019 when medics from across the force came together for an 8,000 mile, non-stop evacuation of a critically injured Soldier. With a C-17 Globemaster III crew and refueling aircraft positioned along the way, 18 medics, including a Critical Care Air Transport Team, moved the patient direct from Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. At every stage and under strenuous conditions, Airmen delivered exceptional care to save a life. While the length of this mission was challenging and unprecedented, this is the type of mission the Air Force prepares to execute every day, delivering ready medical support to operational forces. Air Force medics stay ready to answer that call and “fight tonight” by maintaining clinical currency and proficiency through treating patients and readiness training.

  • Laboratory: Heart of 20th MDG clinic

    Tucked away in a corner of the medical clinic, Airmen donned in white lab coats scrutinize data smaller than the human eye can see - information trapped in vials of blood, cups of urine, swabs of skin and containers of other substances not often mentioned in polite conversation. These laboratory technicians spend their days delving into scientific processes and analyzing hundreds of samples to generate results sometimes in as little as a few hours.
