Col. (P) Thomas R. Tempel Jr. and Retired Maj. Gen. Thomas R. Tempel stand in front of the Army Dental Command crest May 14, the eve of Col. (P) Tempel's promotion to major general and chief of the Army Dental Corps, a position held by Tempel Sr. from 1990-1994 and as deputy surgeon general from 1993-1996. The pair represent more than 93 years of service to Army Medicine by three generations of Army generals beginning with Carl Tempel (father of Tempel Sr.) who entered the U.S. Army Medical Corps in 1929 and rose to become the Army surgeon general's director of professional services, a leader in tuberculosis research and treatment, and a Maj. Gen. and commander of Fitzsimons General Hospital. (U.S. Army photo by Dr. Valecia Dunbar, MEDCOM Public Affairs)
