Two Wellsville Volunteer Ambulance Corp members prepare for US Army deployments


Trenton White and John Waide, brothers in arms

Waide and White will serve in Iraq on separate missions

Some people are hardwired for doing the toughest jobs on the planet. Very few people have the willingness and ability to do those jobs on a global scale. Serving in the Wellsville Volunteer Ambulance Corp isn’t for the faint of heart, neither is deploying to the other side of the world with the US Army. Captain John Waide and Private 2nd Class Trenton White, both WVAC members, are making thier fellow first responders and community very proud:

“Wellsville Ambulance would like to acknowledge and express our deepest gratitude to two of our outstanding members who have been tapped for Deployment with the United States Army.

CPT John Waide and PV2 Trenton White are both active members of our agency and are soon departing for separate Deployments overseas. Gentlemen, we are proud of you both and we thank you for your service to our country. Stay safe, be vigilant, and we will be anxiously awaiting your return home!”

White deploys for a 9-12 month deployment to Iraq and his mother, Brandi, while naturally emotional, had this to say about her boy:

“We are just so damn proud. He has a great big heart and genuinely cares for people.”

Friends and family will be throwing Captain Waide a going away party later this month before he deploys for service in Iraq.
