I am in CRNA school in So California. I just completed a months training at the Balboa Navy Medical Center in San Diego where as an anesthesia provider I learned regional blocks.
I came to know quite a few of the nurses and CRNAs. The last day I was there, the deployment sched was announced. It was the first time I as a civilian knew someone personally who was leaving for war. It hurt alot.
I can not tell you who are serving how proud I am of your dedication and courage. I want to say to you that I respect your work, your committment and you will always be in my prayers.
