The crews answered the call for assistance and once they reached the incident, Meier and Schultz exited the aircraft to assess the number and priority of casualties, explained U.S. Army Capt. Erin Doyle, Det. 1, C Co. 2-211th GSAB commander. Meier provided medical care to the patients on the first helicopter, as Schultz remained on the ground with the remaining patient until the next helicopter landed. All patients were then transported for follow-on medical care.

“You all are heroes,” said Lengyel. “I couldn’t be more proud…you were ready and reacted to save lives.”

Lengyel added, the skill and training of the Task Force Marauder Soldiers was evident in the speed of which they reacted when service members were in need, getting the patients to follow-on care within an hour of the incident taking place.

“You were ready to do your job,” he said. “Thank you for what you do.”
