Yup your right, but I think this tragic email needs to be focused on the three that gave their lives as a gift so a hunter could live another day! Lifeteam has nothing to do with this tragic news. Although, the three that were greatly injuried in Western Kansas from the Dodge City base should be remembered in our thoughts and prayers as they are still grounded!

Wasn't AirEvac Lifeteam the one based in Kansas? If so, then the two companies split over 5 years ago, and LifeTeam still has operations in Kansas.
