  • NOME, Alaska — Pulling off the nation's largest recurring joint medical readiness exercise, Operation Arctic Care, requires significant logistical support in remote areas of western Alaska where miles of wilderness separate villages in Alaska's last frontier.

With no roads connecting villages, transporting supplies, equipment, and personnel to 16 locations in two weeks requires dedicated planning, flexibility and knowledgeable professionals -- professionals like the men and women of the Alaska National Guard.

Following the arrival of Arctic Care participants April 9 on Alaska Air National Guard C-130 aircraft and a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III, Alaska Army National Guard aviators and maintenance crews have worked tirelessly to get the right people and equipment to wherever they are needed.

Flying up to six aircraft a day in support of Arctic Care operations to various villages across the Bering Sea and Norton Sound region, the biggest factor flight crews need to be prepared for is the weather.

With the support of the Alaska National Guard, Arctic Care 2012 military medical professionals have conducted 7,102 procedures, met with 3,979 patients and received significant training, providing excellent care to some of America's most rural citizens.

Sponsored by the Innovative Readiness Training program under the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs, Arctic Care is bringing health care and veterinary support to residents in the Bering Strait and Norton Sound regions of western Alaska from April 9-23.
