AIR Force personnel and ships are
not normally spoken of in the same
breath, but a team of Air Force den-
tists, nurses, dental technicians and a
security policeman have made their
home on the amphibious transport
ship USS Cleveland.
They are a part of Pacific
Partnership, an annual humanitar-
ian aid mission sponsored by the
Commander US Pacific Fleet.
The mission -- which started in
2005 in response to the Indonesian
tsunami crisis -- aims to develop
relationships, the ADF's ability to
operate in close cooperation with
military colleagues from the US,
New Zealand and other participants,
and improve the way of life for our
Engineering and medical aid to
Vanuatu, Tonga, Papua New Guinea,
East Timor and the Federated States
of Micronesia will be provided dur-
ing the operation, which runs until
July 25. The ADF contingent of 38 is
deploying in two phases.
Security policeman SGT Trevor
Moir, of 24SQN at RAAF Base
Edinburgh, said working on a ship
was very different to a base.
"Life on board is certainly differ-
ent. This is my first time at sea and
it did take a couple of days for me to
get my sea legs, particularly the tight
living quarters. All in all, I'm enjoy-
ing the experience," SGT Moir said.
"My role on board the ship is
maintaining discipline and regular
policing. While ashore I'll be work-
ing in close partnership with the
host nation force protection and
civilian police forces, as well as
visiting the various locations where
the Aussie contingent members are

CPLs Zenith King and
AIR Force and Army medics at
the Role 1 medical facility at
Al Minhad Air Base's (AMAB)
medical facility in the United
Arab Emirates are providing
primary healthcare as well
as aero-medical evacuation
(AME) support for personnel
AMAB's medical facility
also coordinates and conducts
AME evacuations from in-
theatre and plays a major
role in returning patients to
Senior nursing officer
FLGOFF Paul Head is involved
in the tactical side of AMEs
and part of his job requires him
to travel into Afghanistan to
"Patients are evacuated
from the site of injury and
taken to Tarin Kot's Role 2
medical facility or the Role
3 hospital at Kandahar Air
Field," he said.
"Once they have been sta-
bilised we bring them back to
AMAB for further assessment.
Things are organised for an
AME home if required."
FLGOFF Head also
organises the AMEs for bat-
tle casualties passing through
Al Minhad and other patients
requiring return to Australia.
"Except for those who go to
Germany, anyone that needs to
be repatriated to Australia will
come through me," he said.
"If patients require a medi-
cal escort back to Australia, we
will bring them back here, sta-
bilise them at the facility, and
then fly them home."
Each leg was as important
as the next.
"From the medics on the
ground all the way back to
AMAB, every step is crucial
in preserving the health and
wellbeing of the individuals we
treat," he said.
"Without the links in the
chain it just doesn't work."
During the past months
FLGOFF Head has assisted
with most of the ADF mem-
bers requiring an AME from
"It has been very challeng-
ing and we have been working
long hours, but it's great to
see the Australian spirit shine
through," he said.
ALL IN A DAY'S WORK: FLGOFF Paul Head on the job at
Tindal. He is currently deployed to Al Minhad Air Base as
the senior nursing officer.
