Abstract : Since 2001, the Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB) has organized a symposium on some aspect of military entomology at the annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America. The 2010 meeting was held at the Town and Country Conference Center, San Diego, California, and our symposium was held on Tuesday, 14 December. The theme of the 2010 symposium was DoD Entomology: Global, Diverse, and Improving Public Health, with the intent of showing the diversity of non-entomology work performed by military entomologists, the worldwide impact of military entomology, and the positive impact military entomology has on improving public health in developing countries. The adaptability of military entomologists and the ability to lead and function in occupational areas not even closely related to entomology is one of many strengths found in the military entomology corps.
