I received this coin from AK on her retirement from 20 years of active duty in the military. I presented this coin to a patient of mine when I had to say goodbye to her as her employer changed her health insurance. I have helped take care of "T" for 10 years, through a number of serious health issues. "T" is one of the strongest people I have known, and only got stronger in the face of adversity. Even at the peak of her health issues, she greeted me with a warm smile and our visits left me with a smile of my own. I learned from her through how she coped with her illnesses and managed her job and family, including twins the same age as my twins. She has enriched my life as a person and as a doctor and I will always remember her. I'm sad I can't take care of her anymore!
