The 341st Medical Group participated in Project READY EAGLE Aug. 16-20, 2021, which was a training event culminating in a two-day exercise that enhanced the Airmen's readiness, team integration and all-hazards response skills. Day one focused on a point-of-distribution exercise where participants practiced their ability to distribute medication to more than 2,000 patients after a simulated anthrax exposure. Day two focused on mass-casualty response where medical and bioenvironmental Airmen responded to a simulated chemical explosion.(U.S. Air Force photo by Heather Heiney)
