FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas " Staff Sgt. Christopher Armstead walks toward Freedom Park with his wife, Gretchen, and daughter Imij, 5, for an after-celebration stroll Dec. 4 following the Warrior and Family Support Center 10th Anniversary Open House. Armstead is one of the more recent additions to the "family" at the WFSC, who has been here with his family for the past six months since being diagnosed with cancer in his 20th year of active service as a medic. "Literally, since I arrived, we have been considered family here," said Armstead of the reception given him and his family by the staff and volunteers here. "This is a getaway. The moment you walk through those doors, it causes your worries to melt away."
