SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A veteran in Springfield is continuing to serve by offering medical advice, he learned in the military, to help community members.
Jeffery Hamby served in the military for eight years. He spent six years in the Marine and two years in the Navy.
While in the Navy, he attended medical school where he learned to treat battle wounds like bullet wounds and lost limbs. He is now using those skills to offer in-home care.
Hamby serves his community as a healthcare service provider. He said he does everything he can for his clients from helping them with dental care to making sure they stay up-to-date on medications.
"He will always go above and beyond with things that he needs to do. I'll tell him to sit down and take a break [and he will say] 'well no, I need to go do more'," said Connie Wilson, a client.
