Throughout the Army medical command’s history, the enlisted Soldier has consistently served in roles of great responsibility.
“Enlisted Medical Corps Soldiers – the medics are brave men and women who have proven to have the talent, knowledge, and skills that enhance Army medicine’s capability to achieve its mission,” said Sgt. Maj. Reginald D. Crosby, senior medical noncommissioned officer, Kenner Army Health Clinic. “These Soldiers are truly the backbone of Army medicine.”
The Enlisted Medical Corps Soldiers contribute to today’s overall 90 percent survivability rate for combat-injured service members and are an invaluable asset in the health care process. They keep our Soldiers, retirees and families healthy.
The Kenner celebration concluded with an NCO “Right Arm Night” hosted by Crosby with Col. Thomas S. Bundt, commander, Kenner Army Health Clinic, serving as the guest speaker.
“I am truly proud of our skilled, heroic professionals and wish the Enlisted Medical Corps a happy 126th Anniversary” said Crosby.
