The School of Air Evacuation to hold 75th anniversary in conjunction with USAFSAM’s centennial celebrations

A model of a “Jenny”, a Curtiss JN-4, hangs above the atrium in USAFSAM. The “Jenny” was the first aircraft deemed as the first air ambulance. At the end of World War I, the United States Army recognized the need to air transport wounded soldiers. In 1918 Maj. Nelson E. Driver and Capt. William C. Ocker modified a Curtiss JN-4 “Jenny” bi-plane to accommodate a stretcher in order to transport patients. (U.S. Air Force Photo/Stacey Geiger)
