Living that far from civilization, there are a lot of reasons for someone to avoid the doctor’s office unless it becomes imperative. But Martinez has become known as a strong advocate for preventative health care among his colleagues. He not only visits the doctor and dentist; he often drives his barracks-mates to the Puente health clinic for appointments. He has made sure they sign up for insurance – also at Puente. Martinez was from a family of 10. Now there are only 7, because he lost three older brothers to terrible diseases: liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, and advanced diabetes. “They only visited a doctor once they got sick,” he says. “Maybe something could have been prevented.” He’s eating differently, too. When he cooks dinner for the men he lives with, he includes a lot of vegetables. “Squash, carrots, potatoes, celery, onions, garlic,” he says. “Things that have vitamins and will help us stay healthier.”
