944th FW medics boast legacy of pride

Reserve Airmen with the 944th Aeromedical Staging Squadron carry a simulated patient to a K-loader for transport during a training event Jan. 7, 2017, at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Nurses, flight doctors and pharmacy technicians were among the squadron members who participated in the training. In 1996, the 944th Medical Group was deactivated, leaving the 944th Medical Squadron and the 944th ASTS aligned directly under the 944th FW. However, this did not stop both squadrons from continuing their legacy. Both the medical and aeromedical staging squadrons continued to excel in their duties. (Tech. Sgt. Louis Vega Jr.)

This deployment is part of a larger mobilization package of more than 120 doctors, nurses and respiratory technicians Air Force Reserve units across the nation provided in early April in support of the COVID-19 response to take care of Americans. The C-17 is deployed from March Air Reserve Base, California. (Photos by Tech. Sgt. Courtney Richardson)
