Finally- with great sadness for those of you who have come to PJ Med Courses, my friend and Cardiothoracic Surgeon Dr. Michael Graver and his wife Jodi Cohen, friend of the 103rd and the Pararescue career-field and pilot, died this week in a small plane crash. Dr. Graver took time out of his schedule several days a year to volunteer to teach PJs about thoracic trauma in the Cadaver lab. He was committed to teaching PJs and was always proud to read about PJs hacking the mish around the world.
