DUSTOFF Medic of the Year

SSG Benford was selected as the DUSTOFF Medic of the Year for a mission she conducted in Afghanistan a few months ago. Not to get too into detail, the mission was harsh and under hostile conditions. She is honored to receive this award, yet it aches us all that many of our own had to get injured, some lost, for her to perform her duties, which got her selected for this award. 

SSG Benford plans to take time off out of her annual leave to attend the weekend of the reunion. I am asking that if you have the spare change to please donate to help pay for SSG Benford and her family to attend this honorable opportunity!
