Air Force Medics Aid Hondurans

Participating in a two-week Medical Readiness Training Exercise in Honduras, a team of 23 medics from Eglin AFB, Fla., is visiting four sites in the Central American country as part of New Horizons 2006-Honduras, a joint training exercise between the US military and the Honduran government. The team saw and examined nearly 600 patients at the first site in El Recreo, and more than 1,100 patients in two days at Santa Ana. When the New Horizons 2006 exercise is complete in May, US and Honduran forces will have built a maternity clinic, four schools, and provided free medical care at 14 locations in the country.
