Catch ’Em While You Can: Some US Air Force medics in Afghanistan, working with the Panjshir Provincial Reconstruction Team recently employed their health care skills—along with interpreters and other support personnel—among some passing Nomads. The medics, operating as the PRT’s medical civic action program, or MEDCAP, noticed the Kuchi people on their spring migration to the high country for the summer. According to the Bagram Bullet, this was the airmen’s first MEDCAP experience since arriving in the Panjshir Province earlier this month, and they learned, by treating infants to elders, that they needed to set up at least one of their medical bags for family medicine rather than trauma.
