Independence Corps is providing an internship to Jermius Johnson, a student-athlete, senior, attending Justin F. Kimball High School in Dallas, Texas.
Col. Kristine Henderson, M.D., trained at the Uniformed Services University medical school, later becoming an Air Force physician. Following 9/11, Dr. Henderson volunteered and trained as a Critical Care Air Transport Team physician and in 2003 deployed in Operation Enduring Freedom to Iraq.
When Dr. Henderson returned from Iraq, she became chief of the Critical Care Air Transport Team at Patrick AFB in FL. Unfortunately, she was then diagnosed with multiple sclerosis forcing her to retire from her career as an AF physician.
Below is a short video Dr. Henderson shared with us.
Our long-term webmaster, Kevin Rattan, was recently awarded the “Nigel Armstrong Impact Award” by ROI Training. The award is in memory of Nigel Armstrong – a world class trainer and public speaker who passed away far too young. The award includes a substantial donation to a charity of the winner’s choice. Naturally, Kevin nominated Independence Corps, and we are grateful to him, to the late and much missed Nigel, and to ROI for their very generous donation.
