Angela Welch, PA
Physician Assistant, General Surgery - Inpatient
United States Air Force
Initially it was for education. Over the years, it has evolved in to so much more. It is for a sense of pride and honor, and knowing that I belong to something so distinguished and with many great people.
Staying in also keeps me humble, and I plan on doing it for as long as they will let me.
Because I received my education through the military, I would not be here doing what I do if I had not joined the military. I also believe the Air Force has taught me to always be on time, stay focused on the job and pay attention to detail. It has made me an all-around better person.
