“When you think of some of the most difficult, public health challenges that we've experienced over the last several decades, these are the folks who've been there from the start. After 9/11, after hurricanes, after Sandy Hook, after Deepwater Horizon or the Boston Marathon bomb; Commissioned Corps officers were the only United States Government asset to provide direct patient care to health care workers with Ebola in West Africa.”
