"As medics, we take our oaths, then a few good soldiers call us Doc, and that oath seals for life. As I see it the mental health crisis is actually a medical access crisis and its primarily affecting the people I swore to take care of. Our orders were to guard everything within the limits of our posts and quit our posts only when properly relieved. So until that relief is accessible, me and this organization will continue to stand guard, calling out to those who are ready  and fighting beside our siblings in arms for the healing we all deserve"
