(Washington) A young Afghan girl born on a U.S. military plane has moved her parents to a base in Rammstein, Germany.
On a full flight from Qatar on Saturday, the pregnant woman began to have contractions. Shortly after landing in Rammstein, the U.S. military assisted the Afghan to deliver her baby on a plane before transporting her newborn to a nearby hospital.
Each U.S. Air Force aircraft has its own code name for communication with other aircraft or control towers, and the C-17 cargo aircraft code usually reaches a number.
The baby’s parents “named it Reich because it is the code name for C – 17” (Reach 828), General Walters told reporters.
“As you may have guessed, as a U.S. Air Force pilot, this little girl named Reich is my dream to grow up to be an American citizen and fly fighter jets in our Air Force,” he said.
Of the 7,000 people evacuated from Kabul that have crossed American bases in Europe since August 20, the chief of American forces in Europe has made it clear that only a hundred will need medical care for Kovid-19 or other medical reasons. .
Of those 100, 25 were admitted to a local hospital and 12 had already been discharged, General Walters said.
Two more children were born after their mother landed at the Rammstein base.
