I have been activated as part of the national, Maryland response to COVID-19. As you can imagine, things are quite busy here in Maryland. We’re doing a host of mission assignments to include food distribution, testing, security, and Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) distributions. I’m a staff officer now, so not on the front lines. The real heroes are the store clerks, medical personnel, and first responders who are showing up for work every day.
