The GAM-72 Quail decoy mis- sile, carried aboard our B-52s in the bomb bay, flies a similar flight path and speed as the bom- ber itself. It gives off multiple radar blips to radar defense de- tection so that the operator doesn't know which bird is the real one, the Quail or the B-52.

An umpire from the MATS medi- cal party accompanied the crash alert team. In the meantime a command post was set up at the 1400th USAF Hospital headed by Lt. Col. Walter W. Dewey, hospital commander, and Lt. Col. L. S. Wiegele, executive officer. Dr. (Lt. Col.) Russell E. Butler, base dental surgeon, proceeded immediately to the hospital com- mand post to assist the command- er and direct the dental people who are so important in such a disaster—at the crash scene, in the sorting area and wherever needed in the hospital.

Ja- cobsen, VC, was in charge of a team of preventive medicine and veterinarian people ready to cope with other eventualities.

The crash alert team rendered first aid to the victims at the crash scene. Dr. Smokier reported the medical estimate of the situa- tion to the command post at 11:12 a.m.—three sucking-chest wound cases and one multiple jaw frac- ture which were given first prior- ity for movement to the hospital. Because of the extent of the simulated disaster Dr. Smokier asked that the triage team head- ed by Dr. (Capt.) William D. Stewart and TSgt. Brenislaw S. Yuodis be rushed to the scene. This team included a dental of- ficer, Dr. (Capt.) Eugene J. Stoe- benau, and three dental techni- cians, A2C Cecil E. Horde, Gor- don W. Olson and James Peterson. There were 17 other injured suffering from fractures, abras- ions and lacerations. After being given first aid treatment they were placed in second priority for (See Exercise, Page S.)
