Spc. LeBlanc, 68W and Paramedic
Spc. Kelsea LeBlanc is a 68W, Combat Medic with UAMTF 804-1. LeBlanc is with resident of Attleboro, Mass., and shares her story, in her own words, about being called to support the whole of government response to COVID-19. I am a paramedic/firefighter on the civilian side and was at the firehouse going about my normal business. On March 26th, I received multiple texts advising me to pack and get prepared to be called to respond, but no information as to where or when. I just knew that I to go home and pack and get ready to go. I had always known there was a chance of needed activation in the Army Reserve, something I had never experienced before. Whenever I was away from home, it was for training. This time it was real.
