U.S. Airmen at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar and U.S. Soldiers at Camp As Sayliyah, Qatar, combine optometry capabilities to ensure servicemembers across U.S. Central Command are able to focus on their mission.
Once a week, U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Peter Carra, 379th Expeditionary Medical Group optometry officer in charge, and Tech. Sgt. Marquita Moore, 379th EMDG optometry NCO in charge, travel from AUAB to CAS to perform eye exams alongside their U.S. Army counterparts of Area Support Group – Qatar.
Carra and Moore provide Soldiers at CAS eye exams, physicals and referrals to ensure their optometry needs are met while deployed.
