At an employee
reception on Tuesday, Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital honored its
two citizen soldiers who returned safely home from calls to duty
during the last year.
On active duty as a member of
the U.S. Army Reserves, Larry Martincic, ultrasound technologist,
used his expertise in diagnostic imaging to provide critical health
care services to our nation's troops during this time of conflict.
Also on active duty as a member
of the U.S. Army Reserves, Jack Owen, R.N., from the emergency
department, served in readiness to provide critical health care
services to our nation's troops.
In resolutions of grateful
appreciation from the ALMH board of directors, presented by Woody
Hester, president and chief executive officer, each citizen soldier
was recognized and acknowledged for selfless sacrifice and service
