A Story Worth Repeating

I've taken more than a few shots at the military public affairs community (see the post below), but I also believe in giving credit where it's due.

This article from the CENTAF Froward News Team bears reading--and linking. It tells the story of deployed military personnel in Iraq who volunteer on their days off at the Balad AB hospital. Think about it: most of the airmen serving in Iraq work six days a week, or get only a couple of days off every 2-3 weeks. Instead of taking a well-deserved break, many pitch it at a key military medical facility, assisting the hosptial staff, or filling in so some of the medics can have a day off.

Read it, and be impressed by the incredible professionalism--and humanity--of those who wear our uniform.
