Schaffer said the need to help others not only pushed him to pursue a career in nursing, but to join the Air Force once he ﬁnished his schooling. “I joined the Air Force to make a difference,” he said. “It was an easy decision to use my training to serve my country, and help those who need it.” While the injury was not a dire situation, Schaffer used his training gained through his studies and the Air Force to assist the injured man, and put the family at ease – a situation any Airmen could ﬁnd themselves in - at any moment. “It could happen to any Airman,” said Kevin Berry, a 633rd Air Base Wing Self-Aid Buddy Care advisor. “That is what makes SABC training so important.” Berry, who retired after nearly 26 years as an active-duty aerospace medical service technician, has also used his own medical training in unexpected situations. Once while off-duty in Minnesota, Berry was one of the ﬁrst on the scene of a car accident. Using his Air Force training, Berry ran to the damaged car, and held the drivers neck in place to avoid any inadvertent movement that could worsen any potential injury to the driver’s neck. Then he waited for emergency responders to arrive. This is another instance that proves that a Service members’ training can be called upon at any moment. “It’s important for all Airmen to be able to take care of their wingmen while deployed, at work or even on vacation.” said Berry. “It may not be life or death, but you never can know.” Active-duty Airmen interested in signing up for a SABC class or CPR class can call the Education and Training ofﬁce to schedule a time to attend the course. While SABC qualiﬁcation is a deployment requirement, it is paramount for all Service members to be able to use these skills at any time. “It’s great to be able to help someone when you’re not required to,” said Schaffer. “It’s the right thing to do.”
