    WAYNESBORO, GA – Military members wrapped up the East Central Georgia Innovative Readiness Training event here June 23. The 12-day event provided service members with valuable training while providing local residents with more than $1.3 million in free medical services.
    “Working with the members of the community has been awesome,” said Air Force Reserve Lt. Col. Aly Eisenhardt, the officer in charge of ECG IRT 2019. “It’s been successful for us and we received the training we needed.
    “If I was to measure success on the mission it would be through patient care, readiness and training. Additional measures include community engagement and the cost savings for community residents with no-cost patient care.”
    From June 15 to 22, military members provided medical services at no cost to community residents on a first-come, first-served basis. Many residents arrived in the early hours of the day to receive medical care. Dental services filled up quickly each day and remained in high demand throughout the week.
