215th Corps improves CASEVAC process
An Afghan Air Force Mi-17 helicopter lands at Camp Shorabak, Afghanistan, Aug. 5, 2017. On July 24, two Mi-17s completed a casualty evacuation in the Nawa district of Helmand province in support of Operation Maiwand Four. Afghan National Army soldiers with 215th Corps successfully planned and prepared for potential CASEVACs during the operation with assistance and support from U.S. Marine advisors assigned to Task Force Southwest. The Afghan forces extracted the wounded soldier from the battlefield within an hour of notification, which allowed for quicker medical care and saved the soldier’s life.
