Nations from around the world have sent their medical personnel to attend the USAFSAM CCATT course seeking to build their own national capability based upon the USAF model. This is also leading to a growing international interest in developing commonality of capabilities in the hopes of allowing future multinational CCATT operations that can most fully exploit CCATT capabilites in the future Multi-national operational environment.

Getting these patients back states side was a major operation. I have flown patients in the first class area of TWA with vents drips etc. Flown intubated patient on a Nightingale back to Germany. It was a very strange experience to be the RN in charge who was not active duty. SO SO pleased that CCATS are here and what wonderful work you do.
