On behalf of Navy Medicine, congratulations to the men and women of our civilian corps as you celebrate your first anniversary.

On April 30, 2017, the navy surgeon general and chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery authorized the establishment of the Navy Medicine Civilian Corps as part of Navy Medicine’s corps chief’s office. Since then, the civilian corps has continued its mission in the advancement of the Navy Medicine civilian workforce.

Navy Medicine civilians provide critical technical expertise, continuity of knowledge, experience and diversity of perspective. The Navy Medicine civilian corps supports career and leadership development and advocates on behalf of Navy Medicine civilians.

Happy birthday to the more than 11,500 Navy Medicine civilian personnel. Thank you for your selfless service and sacrifices you continue to make in support of the Navy Medicine team. I am proud and honored to serve with you.

— Vice Admiral C. Forrest Faison III, Navy surgeon general and chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery.
