A resilient rebel

Lt. Col. Melanie Friedman, Curtis E. Lemay Center for Doctrine Development and Education deputy director of intelligence, gets ready to ‘jam’ past her opponents during the Capitol City Rollin’ Rebels and Mobile Derby Darlins’ roller derby bout Aug. 9, 2014. Friedman is a utility player for the Capitol City Rollin’ Rebels meaning she can play the position of blocker or jammer. The jammers job is to score points by lapping around or through the blockers. The blockers must stop the opposing team’s jammer from lapping, and help their own team’s jammer score points. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Natasha Stannard)
