U.S. Army nurses from Madigan Army Medical Center, with assistance from 3-2 Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 7th Infantry Division Soldiers, wheel a simulated patient from station to station April 1, 2014. This was done in order to input patient information into a mobile database and prepare them for transport to one of several hospitals as far south as Olympia, Wash., and as far north as Seattle. This exercise was part of a larger operation dubbed Alaska Shield which simulated a 9.2 earthquake similar to the one that struck Anchorage, Alaska, March 27, 1964. It was designed to test a coordinated interstate response by federal, state and local authorities from Washington and Alaska. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Chris McCullough)
