For the tall, quiet Airman, speaking up about his injuries is difficult. His wounds aren’t visible, but they’re very real.

Rebecca Nelson, a retired TO manager and double-lung transplant recipient, works hard to stay healthy by participating in five Zumba classes every week. She worked at Hill Air Force Base for 12 years and received her transplant in July 2012. She has faced a long road to recovery, but with the support of her co-workers, family and Zumba classmates, she’s lost 30 pounds and is on a healthy track.
HILL AIR FORCE BASE — 388th Fighter Wing Senior Airman Kamryn Dungy competed with the Air Force Boxing Team this year and recently became the 2015 San Antonio Region Golden Gloves Champion in his weight class (152 pounds). But his journey to success was laden with roadblocks.
Q: Recently, the West Gate has been backed up. Only two lanes have been open and the construction cones have been out choking the lanes down to the opposite two lanes that are open at the gate. This is a dangerous situation and an accident is very likely. My suggestion for a fix would be to ask the gate guards to open all three lanes before it is a necessity and to also ask that the construction crews to move the cones at the end of their work day. Thank you for your time.
Q: Sir, a few years ago the base installed a nice new vehicle semi-trailer truck inspection facility at the Roy Gate. When you came in the gate, the lights were on in the facility and it looked nice. Now the structure has been damaged and the cover is being destroyed by the sun and high winds that blow through. Are there any plans to repair or remove this facility? I just wonder what the public must think when this is often one of the first buildings they see when they enter the base from that gate. Thanks.
