Medical Squadron Activated to Croughton

The Air Force last week activated the 422nd Medical Squadron as part of the 422nd Air Base Group at RAF Croughton, Britain. “This designation gives us the ability to improve on our great accomplishments as we officially organize our personnel and resources to provide greater care to our air base group family and mission partners,” said Col. Charles Hamilton, 422nd ABG commander, in Croughton’s Nov. 29 release. The activation ceremony took place on Nov. 28. The newly activated squadron takes its lineage from the Air Force Clinic Fairford, which service officials inactivated in September 1988, according to the release. (Croughton report by SSgt.
