I am a soldier: Sgt. Samantha Nosek

“I love the flow of military, DOD civilians and local nationals,” Sergeant Nosek said. “We have everything from colonels to privates first class; PhD’s to personnel with no college experience. And, each truly holds a vital role in our organization. It’s an amazing thing to see operate, especially when one considers exactly how important both our environmental and public health missions are.”
