BRICK – A Brick native is working hard while serving overseas, taking care of fellow service members in Rota, Spain.

Tyler McCabe, a Brick Township High School graduate, is currently serving as a hospitalman at Navy Hospital Rota, providing health care to service members and their families.

Noting that her hometown of Brick has instilled in her the importance of hard work, McCabe stated: “Hard work has made me a more honorable and dedicated corpsman.”

“We are honored to provide operationally relevant medical care and support that not only meets all of the civilian healthcare quality standards, but is highly specialized and tailored to meet the needs of those we serve,” according to Capt. Judy Cynthia, commanding officer at US Naval Hospital Rota.

McCabe is following in the footsteps of her father, also a military man. Her father served in the Marine Corps and inspired McCabe to by relaying stories of his experiences.

McCabe’s experience so far has been a good one, gaining lots of positive responses from her patients at the hospital in Rota, she said.

Although it is quite a distance from her hometown of Brick, McCabe still appreciates the culture that Spain has to offer.
