C-17 Med Evac, Arnold -- AFM

AFA Members, one of you recently sent me this link, http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1407952648?bctid=1664436922, hosted by the San Francisco Chronicle. It links to a 6 minute video of a C-17 crew, along with our AF medics, doing what they do every day, without fanfare, and behind the scenes – saving lives. As many of you know, in most conflicts, the ratio of wounded to dead is about 3 to one. However, due to the great work by our people in this video (as well as improved armor), this ratio today is above 9 to one. Let me know what you think about the video.

Secondly, with the holiday season nearing, I want to remind you to consider a gift of Air Force Memorial Edition wines. We have an agreement with Mr. Robert Arnold of Chandelle Winery where a purchase of their Air Force Memorial Edition Wines provides a monetary donation to the Air Force Memorial Foundation. When you purchase any of their Two, Three, Six or 12 Bottle Packs with the beautiful silver embossed blue label featuring the Air Force Memorial spires a portion of the purchase price returns to the Air Force Memorial Foundation. Many of you may know that Robert is the grandson of General of the Air Force Hap Arnold.

To purchase on-line go to www.airforcememorial.org and click on the Air Force Memorial spires wine label. Or, to order by phone call the Chandelle Winery directly at 800.544.8890.

For your consideration.

Mike

AFA should encourage more possitive clips on the USAF Mission like this one to keep us in public favor!

Some things never change. Flying C-141's during the Vietnam war, I became friends with many Medevac crew. They were just like these folks. Across nearly 40 years, my regards to my brothers and sisters.

This is an inspiring video. It shows commitment and union between soldiers. Its amazing to see all the efforts the soldiers do to save a life. I truly thank them for everything they do and more.
