    WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Vice Adm. Forrest Faison, Navy surgeon general and chief, U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, served as a keynote speaker for the 40th Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences graduation held at National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Constitution Hall May 18.
    “In just a few minutes, you will walk across this stage, just as my classmates and I did 35 years ago and will formally and forever be known as doctor,” said Faison. “Doctor of medicine, doctor of philosophy, all of you will be welcomed into the company of men and women who have dedicated their lives to service and caring for others.”
    More than 400 active duty officers walked the stage and received their diplomas. Faison concluded his remarks by sharing his personal thoughts and knowledge learned throughout his career.
    “Remember this, every person you will ever meet, every patient for whom you will ever care for, every person you will ever be privileged to lead, from today forward is loved by someone and you should always remember their trust,” said Faison.
    At the conclusion of the event, graduating medical students returned to recite their service commissioning oath, led by Faison.
    “Congratulations colleagues,” said Faison, “and welcome to the profession of service and most importantly of caring for others.”
    Navy Medicine is a global health care network of 63,000 personnel that provides health care support to the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, their families and veterans in high operational tempo environments at expeditionary medical facilities, medical treatment facilities, hospitals, clinics, hospital ships and research units around the world.
