Saturday nights at Landstuhl hospital

A gurney stands ready to transport a patient to the Sunday morning US-bound medevac flight in front of a showcase with a Soldiers’ Angels backpack on one of the medical/surgical wards at Landstuhl hospital.

Flights leave Germany for CONUS 3 days each week. At 2200 the night before a medevac mission, Air Force personnel pick up "baggage" and park a gurney for each outgoing patient in the hallway of their ward.
