NY Air National Guard Rescue Wing Assists with St. Maarten Evacuations
Members of the New York Air National Guard's 106th Rescue Wing assist in the evacuation of stranded American citizens from Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten, Sept. 8, 2017. The rescue wing, staging out of San Juan, Puerto Rico with the Puerto Rico Air National Guard’s 156th Airlift Wing, provided rescue support to those requiring urgent medical care following the devastation of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean. The coordinated effort between the Department of State and Department of Defense evacuated 1,172 Americans and 35 other foreign nationals from St. Maarten with the 106th prior to the arrival of Hurricane Jose.
