Medevac mission in Afghanistan

Shabarat Sageed, probably flying for the first time, grips the window of the medevac helicopter as he is flown to a military clinic for treatment. With no conventional combat troops at the base, the medevac unit has been helping civilians, with about 70% of its unit’s 130 missions treating Afghan civilians or security forces.
