I'm Lt. Col. John Hunnicutt. I am an Officer in the Army Reserve Medical Corps, serving at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

And some people ask me, says, well what do they have you doing? I said, well the exact same thing I do in the civilian world.

My specialty is pathology and transfusion medicine. I decided to ah, to serve in the Army Reserve Medical Corps for my love of science and my desire to help Soldiers. It's been a real privilege and honor to be a part of Brooke Army Medical Center and to work with some really wonderful colleagues and people that truly are selfless.

But I can tell you firsthand, it is as good as any academic medical center that I've worked at previously.

My main ah focus is to work with the laboratory and work with the state-of-the-art equipment that's present at BAMC and been fortunate enough recently to bring a new hemoglobin electrophoresis system on line, which is state-of-the-art.

It's been a privilege and honor serving my country by serving as a pathologist and transfusion medical consultant.

My drill weekends consist primarily of teaching first responders on how to respond to the effects of biological and chemical warfare.

I've been married to my wife Ruthann for 26 years and I have two beautiful children, Faith, 13 and Hope, 7.

In my time off, I like to play golf and work on classic collector cars. There is definitely a camaraderie for people in the Medical Corps. All of us realize that we all could be somewhere else. We don't have to be in the military, but we voluntarily serve because we have a sense of patriotism and duty to our country and we don't take freedom for granted.
