What you like about working at the 445th? The people are phenomenal; the location is attractive having major cities nearby; and I love the diversity of the missions we fly.  At any given moment the wing is transporting a critical care patient, delivering life-sustaining supplies to aid humanitarian efforts, landing on a dirt field in an austere location, or supporting a presidential tasking.  The worldwide exposure is priceless and incredibly rewarding!
