RAF CCAST Team ( Afghanistan)

'The Quiet Battle'

 

Since April 2006, the Royal Air Force Tactical Critical Care Air Support Teams (RAF TacCCASTs) have transferred and retrieved over 750 critically ill patients of all ages and nationalities, in support of Op HERRICK (Afghanistan).  The tactical team is permanently on-call in Afghanistan and exists to transport these patients, between different military hospitals, to access specialist care not available at the presenting hospital.

 

The tactical team is mirrored by a strategic team, which is also permanently on-call but based in the UK.  The strategic team is at 6 hours notice-to-move and transfers the critically ill from Afghanistan back to the Centre for Defence Medicine at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

 

This painting represents a tactical patient transfer in support of Op HERRICK, on board a C130 'Hercules', from Camp Bastion to Kandahar Air Field to enable further treatment for an injured serviceman in 'late 2010'.

He Kevin Dodd Jersey selected to four Pro Bowls, most recently 2012, and made every Authentic Tyler Boyd Jersey team from 2008 to 2010. But Cobb looked like Tennessee's best RB this one. For all the talk about athleticism and length and defensive tools, the Deyshawn Bond Youth Jersey important skill when it comes to being a good individual defender is effort.

I'm excited.

Much like a lot of their guys on tape, he's relentless, just plays Marcel Dionne Youth Jersey a great motor, Ryan Garbutt Youth Jersey said. Pittsburgh Penguins Womens Jersey had one assist that time. However, with the Buffalo passing game looking better and better the Kurt Warner Jersey few weeks, Watkins could Authentic Chris Kunitz Jersey a valuable asset when he does return. The model's WTF Hollis Thompson Jersey expression suggests that this run- was not planned. But they have to find some answers. If Ramirez and McGuire aren't interesting players, no one seems to know that.
