Army may pull NC air med-evac support

And by MAST - the "Military Assistance to Safety and Traffic" unit based at Fort Drum. Last year, Army officials indicated the MAST unit would be transferred to a training facility in Washington State. As Jonathan Brown reports, this could leave Jefferson, Lewis and St Lawrence Counties without critical back up med-evac flights.
