Briefs: Air Force clinic renamed in honor of Army medic
A new Air Force combat medical clinic at Forward Operating Base Warrior has been named in honor of an Army medic who was killed by a roadside bomb in November.
The Davis Combat Clinic was dedicated Sunday in memory of Staff Sgt. Carletta S. Davis, who was a medic with Company C, 10th Brigade Support Battalion, 10th Mountain Division. Davis and three other soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb south of Kirkuk.
Davis had been on her third tour in Iraq and left behind a husband and three sons.

Davis gave in the defense and service to the nation, the Army, the 1st Brigade Combat Team and the 10th Brigade Support Battalion’s mission in Iraq,” Lt. Col. Joseph R. Novack Jr., Brigade Support Battalion commander, said in a military news release.
