Master Sgt. Jennifer Gerritsen, an aeromedical technician with the 445th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, helps provide care for wounded warriors while deployed here April 21, 2016. Jennifer and her husband, Kiley, also assigned to the 445th AES, had the opportunity to serve together on this flight as they usually serve on separate crews tasked to rotate moving medical patients from down range to Germany and/or back to the United States. Even though they are on separate crews, their paths often cross as crews help others with preparing the aircraft and loading patients before going off on missions. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt.
