Today, we are in an unprecedented fight against an infectious disease, COVID-19, requiring a joint, synchronized effort across DoD. The Military Health System is serving on the front lines of this fight, enlisting our brightest medical experts and researchers and bringing to bear our vast, world-class system of health care and unique medical combat support capabilities. The Defense Health Agency DHA is prepared for this mission. We exist to ensure every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, and Marine is medically ready to fight tonight and to provide platforms for the uniformed medical force to sustain their medical skills. Along the way, we embrace our responsibility to care for military families so they can focus on the mission. All told, we serve 9.5 million service members, retirees, and family members every day across the globe.
