Doctors Say Ebola is Not Common, Worry More About The Flu

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. (AP) — About 15 Air Force reservists from Joint Base Lewis-McChord are scheduled to deploy Saturday to west Africa to help fight Ebola.

The 446th Airlift Wing says they’re going to Senegal to help load and unload cargo planes.

It’s a sixth-month deployment that will keep them away until May.
