15th SOS performs quick turn, evacuates medical students after Maria
Loadmasters deployed from the 15th Special Operations Squadron, Hurlburt Field, Fla., lean around the ramp of a MC-130H Combat Talon II on the island of Dominica Sept. 23, 2017, after it was devastated by Category 5 Hurricane Maria. The Air Commandos flew through the night from home station after being tasked short notice; then volunteered again to rush to the aid of 19 students on Montserrat, one of which was under medical observation for sudden health issues.
