Kristin Blouin, neonatal nurse, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, and native of Tennessee Colony, Texas, and U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Lamaar Melvin, aerospace medical technician, Labor and Delivery, LRMC, and native of Newburgh, New York, were part of an obstetrics team which responded to an Afghan evacuee newborn delivery which occurred minutes after an aircraft landing, which transported the evacuee, at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. The team, part of U.S. Armed Forces medical efforts in response to the Afghanistan evacuations, is one of many 24/7 medical teams staged at Ramstein Air Base, which has transformed itself into the logistical hub for the evacuation of people from Afghanistan in less than a week.
