'Jigsaw' dustoff transcends borders to save lives

Sgt. Mickey Steiner, a flight medic with Foxtrot “Jigsaw” Company, 1st Battalion, 169th Aviation Regiment, New York National Guard, Task Force Falcon, coordinates care with a fellow flight medic during a patient transfer flight April 26 from Combat Outpost Shukvani to Camp bastion in Helmand province, Afghanistan. "Jigsaw has done great from the get-go, in part because the command from the beginning was driven to bring us together," said Steiner, a Hamburg, N.Y., native, and electronic hardware technician in civilian life. "At this point, I couldn't even tell you which state half the people are from—it just doesn't matter. I just like the experience of helping out and doing the right thing [for the people of Afghanistan]—and getting to fly." (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Luke Rollins/Released)
