Air and evacuation crews fly a noble

Captains Roderick Reid, center, and Carol Nicholson, flight nurses from the 775th Expeditionary Aeromedical Evacuation Flight, fold an American flag on a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft at Naval Air Station North Island, Calif., as Staff Sgt. Brittany Zavala, a 775 EAES aeromedical evacuation technician watches, during the weekly Integrated ICMOP mission. Capt. Nicholson, a dual qualified flight nurse for the Canadian and U.S. Air Forces who is participating in an exchange program, says the flag belongs to her and she always flys it during the ICMOP. “It means a lot to me to fly the flag and brings a tear to my eye to see it flying over the cargo area when there are wounded Americans onboard.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt.
