Vice Admiral Adam M. Robinson, Jr. - Surgeon General, Chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery

The provision of health services is a critical and significant mission within each branch of the U.S. military. The U.S. Department of the Navy's Bureau of Medicine and Surgery has a long and cherished tradition of serving and safeguarding the health of U.S. Navy and Marine Corps personnel. The Bureau plays a central role in the most effective joint casualty care and management system in military history, a system that has saved thousands of lives that otherwise would have been lost on the battlefield.
