Members of the Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility (CASF) and 455th Expeditionary Aeromedical Evacuation Sqdn. help to load patients onto a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III  at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, in March 2013. The CASF is the relay between Bagram’s Craig Joint Theater Hospital and aeromedical evacuation missions throughout Afghanistan. A shift in thinking about how to use aircraft to project complex medical care farther into the battle space has dramatically cut the risk of dying in combat for U.S. personnel (see page 40).
