Heidi Henry, a school nurse at a rural Pennsylvania high school, was in her office when she received a call from a number she did not recognize.
On the other end of the telephone was a soldier who identified himself as Michael Grinston employee.
According to the soldier, Grinston, the US Army’s highest enlisted leader and right-hand man to the top general, wanted to talk with her. Grinston remembers learning that the medic accompanying them on the mission was a woman — the only lady in the battalion, in fact — and he walked in front of his comrades to offer a caution.
Over the previous two years, Grinston has been one of the most visible Army leaders.
