This year, October 13, the Navy celebrated 240 years of the countrys naval presence around the globe, around the clock. 240 years of service has proved a strong, forward-deployed Navy, is key to Americans success. Our Navys heritage is steeped in innovation, and this includes numerous notable achievements from Navy Medicine research and development. I start most mornings reading the BUMED News Clips distributed by our stellar Public Affairs team, and each day it strikes me how the research we conduct throughout the Navy Medicine Research and Development enterprise is both at the core and forefront of the care we provide to our warfighters. Just this week there were highlighted stories on improved casualty survival in spite of increased severity and complexity of injuries, on the importance of reducing stigma for mental health care even among senior leaders, and on the gains weve made in developing new screening protocols for concussion. Navy Medicine R and D is about providing answers and development solutions for health and medical issues for our Sailors and Marines for every setting in which they deploy, which can be anywhere.
