SOTO CANO AIR BASE, Honduras - U.S. Air Force Capt. Amber El-Amin, Joint Task Force-Bravo Operations Medical Planner, and Senior Airman Synethia Robinson, JTF-Bravo medical operations noncommissioned-officer-in-charge, help load equipment into a 1st Battalion, 228th Aviation Regiment CH-47 Chinook helicopter July 25, 2016 at Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras. The aircraft is being loaded in preparation for a Medical Readiness Exercise mission in the Colón department of Honduras. The two Airmen play a vital role in the Joint Operations Planning Process - a process that includes building concepts of operation; synchronizing and de-conflicting all logistical and support elements; scheduling and leading meetings and rehearsal of concept drills; ensuring all mission personnel, to include Honduran employees, have all appropriate passport and country clearances; and that all personnel and equipment are manifested and ready for transport to MEDRETE locations throughout Central America.
