Road to Recovery: A Story or Resiliency

In October 2022, Air National Guard 2nd Lt. Emily Mackey was injured in an accident while riding on a side-by-side that flipped over, severely injuring her right arm, and causing a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Her husband, 2nd Lt. Matthew Mackey, who was also a passenger, and had recently undergone Tactical Combat Casualty training, rushed to find tourniquet to apply to her arm as they awaited the arrival of emergency services.
