Scott service members serve as volunteer firefighters for local community

U.S. Army Maj. Nikki Blystone, U.S. Transportation Command logistics officer, stands in front of a fire engine, July 7, 2017, at the O’Fallon Fire Department in O’Fallon, Illinois. Blystone said some of the best moments come from educating young girls about being a firefighter: “I see some of the little girls that come up when we do a truck display and ask them, “Are you going to be a firefighter?’ and the look in their eyes is ‘Oh, I can do that?’ I hope one day that’s not a question.”
