    Alaska National Guard Aviation Support Critical to Operation Arctic Care



    Video by George Kale 

    Alaska National Guard Public Affairs

    Pulling off the Nation’s largest recurring joint medical readiness exercise 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.
    “Task force aviation is critical to our ability to travel to each village and provide medical, dental, optometry and veterinary care,” said Lt. Col. Sharolyn Lange, task force medical commander for Operation Artic Care 2012. “We can’t do our job without their daily support getting supplies and personnel into each of the Arctic Care villages.”
    Following the arrival of Arctic Care participants on Alaska Air National Guard C-130 aircraft and a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III April 9, Alaska Army National Guard aviators and maintenance crews have worked tirelessly to get the right people and equipment to wherever they are needed.
