A wing and a prayer

PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - Thirty of Brevard's Reserve Rescuers returned home May 8 from Afghanistan after four months of performing medical evacuation missions working with U.S. Army units. The Citizen Airmen conducted 2,000 medical evacuation missions flying HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopters loaded with aircrew and pararescuemen to save lives. More than half of these medical evacuations were due to combat action. They helped saved more than 570 people and two military working dogs. They provided life saving medical care to U.S. military members, coalition forces, as well as Afghani soldiers and citizens including 47 children and four enemy patients. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Capt.
