Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – For months on end the 101st Airborne Division Lifeliner medical team has provided exceptional medical support to Soldiers, D.A civilians, and sister service members since arriving to Bagram. As snow covers the mountain peaks and temperatures begin to drop, this five-man team is prepared to combat flu season and maintain readiness.

“Medical preparedness keeps our Soldiers in the fight; it’s the number one priority for the Secretary of the Army and the Chief of Staff,” said Staff Sgt. Tyler Rector, a combat medic assigned to the brigade. “This is the best way to protect our Soldiers from the influenza virus before we enter into the rough winter months.”
