Air Medical Memorial Wings Story
By: Cathy Spry, Flight nurse, STATCARE, Louisville, KY
Similar to the way that police and firefighters wear a black band or strip across their badges for a fallen comrade, the memorial wings are intended to show respect and honor for our air medical colleagues. The pin can be worn on any type of uniform or flight suit following an accident.
The Air Medical Memorial Wings© continues to provide a set of pins to a flight service where an accident occurs in memory of those crewmembers. Additional pins can be obtained through the Air Medical Memorial Wings website.
The cost of the Memorial Wings pin is $10.00, which includes shipping. $1.00 of this is donated to the ASTNA Bereavement Fund. Monetary donations are also contributed within our industry for research and safety. Please make checks payable to "Air Medical Memorial Wings".
On behalf of the Air Medical Memorial Wings, Inc. and the Air and Transport organizations, please accept our heartfelt sympathy and prayers to all of the services—and their families—that have suffered injury or loss of life. Thank you for your support of this memorial honoring our colleagues.
