Pfc. Emilia Angel, a combat medic specialist with the 108th Area Support Medical Company, 213th Regional Support Group, Pennsylvania Army National Guard, provides medical assistance to Amalia Belin, a resident of St. John, during a visit to the Bethany Church Shelter to provide care to residents of the shelter in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in October 2017 on St. John. A recent study says that hundreds of Virgin Islanders may have died as a result of the 2017 hurricanes.
