The Mary T. Klinker Award
is presented by AsMA for significant contribution to, or achievement in, the field of aeromedical evacuation. The award is named for US Air Force Captain Mary T.

Mary was killed on the C-5A Galaxy which crashed on April 4, 1975 outside Saigon while evacuating Vietnamese orphans.
