JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO - William Vance, 59th Medical Wing medical illustrator, applies paint to a compression mask at Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center at Joint Base San Antonio Lackland. Vance uses his artistic skills to support the creation of a custom-made pressure mask and facial prosthetic. Normally, compression masks are standard, but in this case, the mask is tailored to the patient’s facial contours to more closely resemble their pre-surgical anatomy. (Photo by Tech. Sgt.
