Nathanial Alejandro with the Reception Medical Center, while Soldiers from 1st Battalion, 34th Infantry Regiment and the U.S. Army Chaplain Center and School cycled through.
It's not just medical. "It's all the other places too" like Army Community Service, Army Substance Abuse Program, and Military and Family Life Counseling," he added. "If they need shots or hearing we can give them that too."
