Lt. Lisa Peterson, of Derwood, Md., front right, and Lt. Mark Banks, of Savannah, Ga., tend to a patient flown-in by a U.S. Navy helicopter to a temporary triage site in Aceh, Sumatra on January 2, 2005. Medical teams from USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72), Carrier Air Wing Two (CVW-2) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) set-up a triage site located on Sultan Iskandar Muda Air Force Base, in Banda Aceh, Sumatra. The two teams worked together with members of the Australian Air Force to provide initial medical care to victims of the Tsunami-stricken coastal regions. (UPI Photo/Elizabeth A. Edwards/USN)..
