Major Shannon Womble received honors as the Critical Care/ICU Nurse of the Year as well as the 2009 Air Force Nurse of the Year Award. Womble is the first nurse to receive the newly established award. She was joined in the winner’s circle by Lt. Col. (Dr.) Raymond Fang who won the U.S. Air Force Surgical Excellence Award, and Lt. Col. (Dr.) Alexander Servino who garnered honors as the U.S. Air Force Podiatrist of the Year.
They are assigned to the 86th Medical Squadron at LRMC which works side by side with fellow Army and Navy medical practitioners who have treated more than 60,000 wounded warriors aeromedically evacuated to LRMC since January 2004. It is in that spirit of selfless service as part of a joint medical team that makes their accomplishments even more special, said Col. (Dr.) John M. Cho, hospital commander.
Congratulations Major Womble, Dr. Fang, and Dr. Servino! Their many achievements are impossible to summarize here, so please read the article and get to know three indivduals who have dedicated their careers to serving our wounded warriors.
