The multidimensional complexity of stability operations has captured much attention in the Air Force. Key features of these operations include humanitarian relief, reconstruction of emergency infrastructure, provision of essential government services, and maintenance of a safe, secure environment. Military health support plays an everyday, vital role in each of these features.
