Making an impression medically and taking care of the unit

Airman First Class Kristen Cannon, a medical technician at the 932nd Medical Group, Aeromedical Staging Squadron, spent an extra weekend working on special projects to assist her Illinois Air Force Reserve Command unit getting ready for the next drill weekend coming up in April. "In addition to the medical training, I've really enjoyed learning about and helping others get proper recognition through the awards and decorations program at the wing. Weekends are very busy and every Sunday afternoon we also do skills training to stay up to date medically. The most challenging thing I've experienced as a medical technician was a combative patient struggling, but the overall medical program has been rewarding," Cannon said. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj.
