Senior Airman Tamara Davie used the first aid buddy care skills she learned as a member of the Michigan Air National Guard to respond quickly to calls for help while working at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., Jan. 22. A woman had fallen, hitting her head. She was bleeding and vomiting. The woman, the mother of another Airman, recovered thanks to Davie's quick response.
Davie, a Command Support Staff journeyman with the 127th Maintenance Group at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Mich., was making her way to her room at the MacDill Inn on the base after closing out another day on her two-week training mission during Exercise Emerald Warrior with the 127th and its A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft. Then she heard the frantic cries for help from another guest at the on-base hotel. The Airman immediately jumped into action.
