The 39th Operation Medical Readiness Squadron health promotion team provides and integrates evidence-based programs to optimize the health and readiness, even during these unprecedented times. “Airmen must be ready to operate and succeed in the future high-end fight,” Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown, Jr., expressed in his Action Orders.
