The Power of Stories and Staying Connected w/Captain Sabrina Torres and Captain Orlando Cabigas

“Your story could be the key that unlocks someone else’s prison. Don’t be afraid to share it.” In this episode, I interview Captain Sabrina Torres and Captain Orlando Cabrigas, medical officers stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. We talk about their grassroots response to addressing their Airmen’s need to talk about race and discrimination, how they seek to share the human side that we all have in common, and discuss some creative ideas to share our collective stories and strengthen the Air Force community.
