Airmen build additional tents

Tech. Sgt. Nakisha Mataia supports a tent pole March 23, 2010, in Angol, Chile. The hospital in Angol was severely damaged in an 8.8-magnitude earthquake Feb. 27, 2010. With the loss of the regional hospital, local medical officials lost the use of 190 beds. At the request of the Chilean government officials, an Air Force Expeditionary Medical Support team deployed to Angol to build a hospital to serve the more than 110,000 people in the region. Sergeant Mataia is an aerospace medical technician assigned to the 56th Medical Group at Luke Air Force Base, Ariz. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Tiffany Trojca)
