The plight of unarmed Army Dustoff helicopters is reaching many ears. Yesterday, someone at a major newspaper asked me to write an Op-ed, and there are many other elements of progress in raising awareness. After we raise awareness, the time will be ripe for change.
Please see this letter from Congressman John Shimkus:

Mr. Jeff @@@
Dear Mr. @@@:
Thank you for contacting me regarding medevac flights in Afghanistan. I appreciate hearing about the issues that are important to you.
The safe and timely evacuation of our wounded troops from the battlefield and to high quality medical facilities should always be a priority for our armed forces. Please be asssured that I will monitor this situation at the Department of Defense.
Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me. To stay informed on other important issues, I encourage you to sign up for my weekly electronic newsletter at shimkus.house.gov.
