Airmen home from Southwest Asia after providing medical care in the air for America's wounded troops

Five Airmen from the 142nd Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron gather upon their return to the New Castle Air National Guard Base on May 8, 2013. The flight nurses and medical technicians from the Delaware Air Guard 166th Airlift Wing completed a four-month overseas mission that began over the holidays. They left Delaware in late December and started operations in Southwest Asia on New Year’s Day in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, providing medical care in the air to America’s wounded combat troops on their way home for further treatment. Additional Airmen from the 142nd AES are still serving in SWA. L to R: Staff Sgt. Michael McBride, Senior Airman Elizabeth Schirling, 1st Lt. Sean Kelley, Senior Airman Samantha Power and Capt. Anne Cloud. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Benjamin Matwey)
