The 446th Airlift Wing hosted Rainier Medic, a joint training event meant to bring joint service reserve units from all over the U.S. to Joint Base Lewis-McChord to practice field medical skills essential to mission accomplishment while deployed or responding to a contingency operation.

Members of the Air Force and Navy Reserve used real world assets, which included UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters and C-17 Globemaster III aircraft.

While the event is not planned to take place annually, the idea is that incorporating other units and perspectives from different sources will strengthen overall effectiveness.
