The US Army and Air Force have combined rescue teams in Afghanistan. Its keeping the USAF' leadership and pararescue personnel but will be using Army CH-47F instead of their traditional HH-60G Pave Hawk's

It does make sense. The Chinooks are faster and carry more and look to be a bit more robust than their tail rotor counterparts. Given that Afghanistan is the absolute worst environment for rotary craft (high, hot, dusty, and lots of guys with guns looking to take down a copter) it make sense.

I know we do cross educational stuff with several of the ANG units near us. We teach them about pediatrics and pediatric transports (they have a need because they also do humanitarian stuff) and they teach us about trauma etc (in peds we do not see alot of gunshots etc.). Its fascinating to me that they are so nonplussed about evac stuff yet a newborn with a congenital heart defect seems way more scary. I deal with that a million times over rather than be shot at while trying to land etc.

They remains some of the most highly skilled and motivated healthcare people I have ever met.
