When Liberty Warriors find themselves injured, they go to the 48th Medical Operations Squadron Emergency Room. Servicing and supporting the combat compatibility for RAFs Lakenheath, Feltwell, and Mildenhall, makes the Liberty Wing ER essential to the mission.

The ER supports more than 12,000 patients every year, providing $2.6 million in equivalent civilian care to RAF Lakenheath Airmen and their families and those assigned to the surrounding American bases. "Projecting airpower through saving lives" is the mission of the RAF Lakenheath ER.

"Working in the ER is beneficial to me because I get to see the patient get better," said Tech. Sgt. Rodney Embree, 48th MDOS emergency room technician.
