Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Nicholas Becker, a hospital corpsman with Marine Wing Headquarters Squadron 3 and native of Independence, Iowa, completed a three-week tour at the Bastion Role 3 hospital. Becker said he gained a substantial amount of experience while there, which will help him throughout his Navy career. The Bastion hospital is the only one of its kind in Regional Command Southwest and one of three in the entire country. The hospitals are staffed with a variety of medical specialists, ranging from intensive care doctors to radiologists and surgeons.
