N.Y.'s 249th Part of a Bigger Picture

VOLK FIELD, Wis. - Flight engineers from the Rochester-based 249th Medical Company (Air Ambulance) prepare for an incentive flight on a UH-60 Blackhawk during Patriot Exercise 2009 at Volk Field, Wis. on July 17.
Patriot 2009 is a large scale exercise integrating U.S. Army and Air National Guard and as many as five coalition forces from as far away as The Netherlands in a joint-training environment. Patriot is unique because participating units plan their scenarios and events to meet their training requirements.
In 2009, Patriot will again go the extra mile to maximize training for all participants, incorporating combat operations and homeland defense scenarios.
Pilots and crew members from the 249th participated in the Patriot Exercise to provide an opportunity for joint force training in medical evacuation and helicopter operations.
