Major Alexander C. Furla served in the U.S. Air Force on active duty from 1985-1996, and later reserves from 1996-2006 as an Aeromedical Evacuation Operations Officer.  Alex was intimately involved in all the processes to deliver the wounded from the battlefields to the hospitals.  Aeromedical evacuation squadrons are also involved in humanitarian and disaster relief missions world-wide.  Alex once joked with us, “that this lowly Captain controlled all these resources.”
