Vice Adm. Forrest Faison Discusses Modernization Strategy for Navy Community

Vice Adm. Forrest Faison, the U.S. Navy‘s lead doctor, talked about how he plans to modernize the service branch’s single largest community that covers approximately 60,000 civilian and military members in an interview with Navy Times published Saturday.

Mark Faram writes Faison said the service branch has teamed up with the Fleet and Fleet Marine Force to assess the troops’ aid station and sick bay capacity on a particular ship or particular unit to preserve or save lives.

The doctor also established a task force to evaluate the training given to corpsmen in schools as well as analyze the training given to servicemembers for various environments, operations ashore and how to support casualties or patients.

“My main challenge is preserving high combat survival for the next conflict or the next deployment, regardless of where it occurs,” said Faison.

“Our commitment to American families is that we will do all in our power to return home their loved ones who have volunteered to serve our nation… There are three parts to doing that: the right training, sufficient clinical experience to reinforce that training, and the self-confidence to know that they can do the job.”
