With our mission being the first Military FCC NDMS activation in US History, it has brought a great deal of attention to our Area of Operations. The number of hospital and emergency management services is pretty extensive. Couple that with the fact that they are housed in the Governor's air hanger and I would say there is a lot of pressure on us to perform at a high level at all times.
We have had a number of high-profile VIP visitors, including the Commanding General from Ft. Jackson and Major General Johnson (2-Star General). However, for medical personnel, although by rank are lower, today’s visit from Brigadier General Dingle (1-star General) was pretty exciting. Brigadier General Scott Dingle is the commanding general of the military branch’s Regional Health Command-Atlantic. General Dingle flew in to visit our AO and speak to both the military personnel and civilians conducting the mission. He was also able to observe an aircraft come in and drop off patients.
