After transporting two prematurely born twins from South Korea to higher-medical care on the East Coast, this total-force team of airlifters is happy to be home. The newborns were medically cleared and protected from COVID-19 before departure and were provided care by a Neonatal Critical Care Air Transport Team from Kadena Air Base, Japan, throughout their journey. Now, the infants are receiving the advanced care they need at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland. This is just one of the many modern miracles that can only be achieved through airlift, along with a network of joint partners around the world.
