FORT HOOD — Nurses of the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center gathered Friday afternoon to celebrate the 116th anniversary of the Army Nurse Corps.
Under the theme “Leading Readiness and Professional Practice: Getting it Done Since 1901,” Maj. Gen. Barbara R. Holcomb, commander of Medical Research and Material Command and Chief of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps, spoke to the group about the enduring spirit and mission of the Corps.
“The Army Nurse Corps has always been an innovative, creative body of knowledge, making things work in tough, austere environments,” Holcomb said. “At Darnall, every day is a live-fire exercise and readiness is imperative at all times, not just during deployments.”
