Staging Ground

More than 50 medics from Air Force Reserve units in Arizona, Massachusetts, and New York took part in medical refresher training and mock drills in operating a contingency aeromedical staging facility during a visit to Kunsan AB, South Korea, from Oct. 18 to Nov. 1. They worked together with Kunsan’s active duty airmen, both doling out training and being on the receiving end. Additionally, while there, the Reservists took inventory of Kunsan’s war readiness materials. “I think this type of training has been going really well and everybody seems to be grasping the concept of what we’re doing and why we’re here,” said SrA. Nikki Lougheed, of the staging facility exercises. She is a Reservist assigned to the 944th Aeromedical Staging Squadron at Luke AFB, Ariz. Along with the Luke Reservists, medics participated from Air Force Reserve Command’s 439th Airlift Wing at Westover ARB, Mass., and 914th AW at Niagara ARS, N.Y. (Kunsan report by SrA. Angela Ruiz)
