I’m the Medical Group Commander at the 190th Air Refueling Wing, Forbes Field ANG Base, Topeka, Kansas. As a traditional Guardsman/Commander, I’ve been engaged in the fight from early March. Even though I live in Oregon and commute to Kansas for drill, I’ve been tele-commuting for the past month: coordinating medical response and distro of the strategic national stockpile with the Kansas Department of Emergency Management and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Additionally, we’ve put multiple Airmen into the fray. Just one small cog in the organizational wheel that will eventually beat this thing.
