Keeping Airmen Safe in the Most Inhospitable Place on Earth

Senior Master Sgt. Joseph Carter, an occupational safety and health manager assigned to the 180th Fighter Wing, Ohio Air National Guard, spent two months in Antarctica on a mission to improve safety procedures for the Airmen of the New York Air National Guard’s 109th Airlift Wing, giving them a better chance to survive and operate in the most inhospitable place on Earth. The Airmen in Antarctica support Operation Deep Freeze, the military component of the U.S. Antarctic Program, managed by the National Science Foundation.
