AMC Working Overtime

Air Mobility Command has been transporting thousands of military personnel, civilian responders, and evacuees, as well as delivering tons of emergency equipment and supplies. As of Sept. 5, AMC had moved 2,552 patients, aided by an 80-person expeditionary medical support team from Scott AFB, Ill., operating out of the New Orleans airport. The command also sent more than 80 contingency response airmen—active duty and Guard—to Keesler AFB, Miss., New Orleans airport, and Gulfport, Miss., to help re-establish airfield operations.
