LANAI, Hawaii - Maj. Andrew Adamich, an optometrist from the 176 Medical Group, mentors Staff Sgt. Katherine Burrows, an optometry technician from the 151st Medical Group, June 5, 2013, here. Forty-five Alaska military personnel from Air and Army National Guard and active-duty Air Force traveled to set up and run medical clinics for medically-underserved Hawaiians on the islands of Lanai and Maui as part of an Innovative Readiness Training project June 2 to 14. The group joined about 500 other military personnel from multiple components of the Air Force, Army and Navy on four Hawaiian Islands at six sites as a joint training mission called TROPIC CARE 2013 – the largest IRT mission since the program began.
