Life savers
Air Force combat medics watch the vital signs of a critically wounded Afghanistan National Policeman during a medical evacuation mission in 2009. The mission was flown by a deployed 711th Special Operations Squadron aircrew from Duke Field on their MC-130E Combat Talon I. The perilous medical evacuation mission, flown at night through blinding snowstorms, was a success in that all the wounded passengers survived after suffering injuries from a suicide bomber.
