PACAF Medics Aid Thailand Underprivileged

Medical personnel from Pacific Air Forces units across the Pacific region joined with medical teams from Thailand and Singapore to provide medical and dental care to underprivileged people in Thailand during the annual Cope Tiger combat readiness exercise in Thailand. TSgt. Aimee McLaren, a dental hygienist at Kadena AB, Japan, said, “We are treating those who are in need,” and added that the lines swelled at the makeshift clinics in schools. The medical teams traveled across Thailand over several weeks, setting up the clinics, dispensing care, and providing donated computers and other school supplies. (Report from Thailand by SSgt.
