Ambulance at 170 mph
My brother-in-law Matt is in Afghanistan, flying medevac helicopters with the Army. A photographer from the Sacramento Bee recently spent some time with a unit very much like Matt's (some of the pictures are of people he's served with in other deployments). The men and women of the medevac units do amazing work, airlifting not only injured U.S. troops but also Afghan soldiers and civilians. Check out the photo essay here.
