Two Soldier from the 402nd Civil Affairs Battalion Functional Specialty Team took on a traveling contact team mission to Kigali, Rwanda, recently to facilitate a flight medic operations seminar for Rwanda Defense Force (RDF) battalion medical officers.

The Soldiers and their Rwandan hosts studied and exchanged ideas on medical evacuation procedures in support of the Rwandans’ pre-deployment preparations for the United Nations – African Mission in Darfur (UNAMID).

“Everyone knows that the Rwanda Army is a very disciplined people,” said Capt. Gisanura Ngabo, Rwanda Air Force general physician. “We have a thirst to know; we want to improve ourselves all the time and are ready to serve.”

The seminar came about in response to a request last year from the Rwandans during a military-to-military event. Medical personnel expressed their desire to have additional information presented about U.S. military medical evacuation procedures in conjunction with using rotary aircraft.
