    8/1/2011 - Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. (AFNS) -- The Air Mobility Rodeo 2011 competition drew to a close here July 29 with the 97th Air Mobility Wing earning the "Best Air Mobility Wing" title during the awards presentation for the air mobility competition.

    In the closing ceremonies, the Rodeo commander addressed the thousands of people who had traveled from around the world to the biennial competition.

    "We came to learn everything we can and work hard," said Brig. Gen. Rick Martin. "Today, we hope to have a little fun as well, as we honor the competitors and their efforts."

    In his address during the closing ceremony, the general called Rodeo "an opportunity to get together with our teammates from across the Air Force and around the world, to trade lessons learned and build camaraderie, (and) to increase readiness and improve our military capability."

    "We never know where we'll be operating next, whether it's aeromedical evacuation, support after a natural disaster, or delivering cargo, passengers or troops where they're most needed," Martin said. "The more partnerships we can build around the globe, the better we can perform our mission.

    "That's what makes Rodeo so important," he added.

    7/26/2011 - JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. (AFNS) -- Chanting, "Team Pakistan," as they ascended the ramp to a KC-135R Stratotanker, four of the five-member Pakistan Air Mobility Rodeo 2011 aeromedical evacuation team were American Airman.

    Upon discovery that Pakistan only had one flight surgeon to compete in the aeromedical evacuation competition, members of Joint Base Lewis-McChord's Reserve unit stepped in.

    Flight Lt. Asif Jah lost his original teammates when their visas did not arrive in time. However, he was more than willing to accept his new teammates, who are usually assigned to the 446th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron.

    Though Jah is a trained flight surgeon, he was unfamiliar with equipment configurations for the KC-135R and C-17 Globemaster III. This part of the Rodeo competition requires a five-person team, traditionally consisting of two nurses and three medical technicians who set up patient support equipment accurately and in a short amount of time.

    The competition included the team configuring a patient support pallet, which is used during contingency operations to hold gurneys, said Master Sgt. Tim McClain, a KC-135R configuration competition umpire.

    To prepare Jah, he trained in less than a week for more than eight hours with his teammates 2nd Lt. Kimmie Marin, a 446th AES flight nurse; Master Sgt. Selina Barone, a 446th AES charge medical technician; Tech. Sgt. Stephanie Wegehoft, a 446th AES medical technician; and Senior Airman Gabriel Itaya, a 446th AES medical technician.

    "They were a great help," Jah said. "They took the training very seriously, and they really took the time to teach me."

    His teammates noticed Jah's dedication to training with the team. He was willing, and as a result he was a quick learner, Itaya said.

    Though the team finished the medical static five minutes past the goal of 25 minutes, they remained enthusiastic and continued to cheer "Team Pakistan" as they emptied the McConnell Air Force Base, Kan., KC-135R of the patient equipment.

    Jah saw the competition as a victory because the training will allow him to apply his knowledge of the KC-135R and C-17 patient configuration when he returns home. He said he is very grateful for the training the Airmen gave him because it's something he can take back with him to Pakistan and help save lives.

    The Airman who worked with Jah said it was an experience of which they were proud to be a part.

    "This was a great opportunity," Itaya said. "We also saw it as a training opportunity and a way to expand international relations."

    The team will learn the results of their efforts when Rodeo concludes July 29.
