WBW (aka Way Back Wednesday) – because my First ambo ride was in Mercy-29.
Mad props to Ken and Andy.
Also, for aeromedical evacuation, shout out to the MAST pros from the 68th Medical Detachment in Hawaii.
Note: When I first started, they were still flying Hueys.
No matter the location, all EMS Professionals work hard 24/7 – and serve proudly in any community that calls.
Thank your local EMS Professionals for a job well done!
