Health Care Provider Orientation Flight
September 11, 2014
at Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base

The purpose of this flight is to familiarize you with the role and mission
of the Ohio National Guard. Specifically, our goal is to build awareness
that we need and appreciate Ohio's healthcare providers caring for more
TRICARE beneficiaries.

Event attendees will take a flight on a Chinook helicopter, tour a KC-135 on static display and meet Soldiers explaining the purpose and use of Army ground military equipment. You will also be able to visit with Airmen from the 121 Air Refueling Wing. We ask that you arrive by 7:45 a.m. We will conclude no later than 1:30 p.m.


TRICARE provides low-cost medical and behavioral health benefits as well as dental coverage with no enrollment fee, low monthly premiums and low-cost prescriptions to Guard Members and their families.
