Dance runs deep in Reservist's heart

Master Sgt. Marie D. Spencer, an aerospace and services technician with the 910th Medical Squadron here, poses for a portrait at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, Aug. 8, 2018. In her civilian life, Spencer has a full time job at the Veteran Affairs hospital in Cleveland as an intermediate care technician. During her time there, Spencer participated in a new pilot program to create new roles for military medics, who are required to understand a wide scope of practice so they can perform life-saving duties while in combat situations. The VA recognized this untapped resource and pushed for the creation of an exclusive position that Spencer and other military medics like her fill. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Jeffrey Grossi)
