U.S. Army Spc. Nathan Britenfeld is currently serving at the Yuma Proving Ground Medical Clinic as an Allergy and Immunization Technician.

He says what he enjoys most about his job is serving the community. “I enjoy meeting new individuals. I give a variety of vaccines to Active Duty members, Retirees and their Families. I cherish learning new things every day and educating those I meet the process of the vaccines they are going to receive.” Part of his duties involve providing coverage at the drop zone for the parachute jumpers.
