The men and women of Robins Air Force Base protect our freedoms, but to fight, they have to be fit.
13WMAZ went "Behind the Lines" with Robins' Public Health Division to see how they battle disease at home and abroad.
SSgt. Tam Nguien's weapons fit in the palm of his hand. He's a technician in the Immunization Clinic.
The shots he gives to patients numerous times a day fight illnesses that could attack even Robins' most fragile civilians.
When we visited the clinic, he was giving routine immunizations to six-month old Autumn Storie. She's the daughter of a Robins airman, Matt Storie.
Nguien said to the Stories, "See. She did good. She stopped crying."
The routine injections against tetanus and whooping cough, like Autumn received, protect airmen and their families at home.
