Tribute to helicopter rescuers

This is a sad story about the crash of two med-evac helicopters in Arizona, leading to the death of 6 people. Here in Boston, we are served by Medflight, operated as a cooperative consortium among the area's trauma centers. The pilots and staff of the Medflight helicopters have an intense focus on safety (even to the extent of training in the use of night vision goggles) and are dedicated to the highest levels of service in delivering patients to our hospitals. I write this in tribute to them and to let them know that we share their sympathy for their lost colleagues out West.
