LTC Steve Soliz
U.S. Air Force, Reserve
So far, I have had a very memorable career, enlisting as a flight medic in 1987 and commissioned as a flight nurse in 1994. I have been involved in Operation Just Cause, Desert Shield/Desert Storm, KFOR and OIF/OEF.
I have been fortunate to be deployed to care for our wounded in different capacities. I have flown patients from as far away as Okinawa back to the States.
I was in Balad with the 21st CSH when the UN in Baghdad was attacked by a car bomb and we worked a massive mass-casualty event that was never seen before in the history of the UN. We evacuated patients to three different countries for definitive patient care.
I am very proud to be a third generation military member.
