'We're your family here'
Retired U.S. Army Capt. Katie Blanchard squeezes the arm of Col. (Dr.) Chad Hivnor, 59th Medical Specialty Squadron laser medicine chief, as he applies a salve on her burned skin after surgery Sept. 6, 2019 at Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas. The surgery's benefits have been evidentially proven in hundreds of seriously burned war veterans, and improve patient's range of motion, pain and the skin's appearance.
