Army Avn DUSTOFF Flight Medic
Of The Year Award

SGT Vitaly A. Tsaregorodtsev, Company C, 6th Battalion, 101st Aviation Regiment Task Force Shadow serves as a Critical Care Flight Paramedic in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel, Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. He participated in all of the major events executed by his unit transporting and providing medical care to 35 critically injured patients on 54 separate medical evacuation missions (MEDEVAC), with over 140 combat flight hours, between March and August 2015. He excels at his duties providing appropriate medical treatment to many U.S. and coalition service members. His most notable achievement was on 7 August 2015, when he transported and expertly treated 6 critically injured patients in a high profile mass casualty in Northern Kabul. His timely and appropriate emergency medical treatment ensured the patients’ survival and eased long term care for them. Although all MEDEVAC crews flew patients that night, SGT Tsaregorodtsev provided care for the most. He took control of the situation and guided his crew chief who was helping him treating casualties. His professionalism, dedication and willingness to do whatever necessary to preserve life serve as a heroic example of the ongoing Dedicated Unhesitating Service To Our Fighting Forces (DUSTOFF) legacy.


Awards Recipients Selected

Another tough selection year. We appreciate all of the hard work and dedication that our DUSTOFF Warriors exhibit on a daily basis. It is on their shoulders that our legacy lives and breathes and continues to save lives on both the battlefields of our turbulent world and the peacetime locations where we serve.

I am proud to announce the following named to receive the DUSTOFF Association Awards at the 2018 DUSTOFF Association Reunion in San Antonio, TX at the Holiday Inn-Riverwalk on the 5 May 2018:

DUSTOFF Aviator of the Year – CW2 Brandon Mathis, C/2-1 GSAB

DUSTOFF Crew Chief of the Year – SGT Edward Keene II – C/3-82 GSAB

DUSTOFF Medic of the Year – SGT Alyssa Benford – C/2-1 GSAB

DUSTOFF Recue of the Year – C/2-1, DUSTOFF 62

It goes without saying that ALL of those nominated displayed great courage, dedication, and skill resulting in their nomination by their commanders. We salute them all.

We hope that each command will make every effort to gain approval for TDY order for travel to San Antonio for the purpose of participating in our Professional Meeting on Saturday morning as well as the Awards Banquet that evening. Both events will be held at the Holiday inn – Riverwalk location in San Antonio. If there is anything that I can do to facilitate or assist with those orders please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please also extend a great debt of gratitude to our Corporate Sponsors – Lockheed-Martin/Sikorsky Helicopters, AirMethods, Breeze Eastern, and Eurocopter USA/AirBus.

ALL awardees and attendees MUST register with the DUSTOFF Association for reunion attendance – you may do so on this site – hotel rooms are going fast at the Holiday Inn – Riverwalk so please book early – the room block is already sold out on the “shoulder dates” – however, the main dates of the reunion 4 May check in and 6 May check out should be available. If you run into issues please contact me and I’ll work with the sales staff at the hotel to get you in our room block (code is “MUY”)

Help Find Lost Association Members

We have an abnormally large number of Association members we can no longer communicate with. When postcards are sent out, for instance to announce voting for Hall Of Fame inductees, we've received cards as "Undeliverable." Please take a moment to scan the list of lost members and send us contact information if you find your name or you know the where-about of someone on the list. [See List]
