    FALLS CHURCH (NNS) – After 37 years of Service, Rear Adm. Terry J. Moulton retired as Deputy Surgeon General and Deputy Chief of US Navy Bureau Medicine and Surgery, February 28, 2020.

    Friends, family and colleagues joined in celebrating Moulton’s Service as Rear Adm. Bruce L. Gillingham, US Navy Surgeon General and Chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, presided over the ceremony.

    “We consider Terry an icon of Navy Medicine, and I would be hard pressed to name an officer who has demonstrated more dedication and loyalty to our organization. He’s been a master XO with a firm hand on the tiller.”

    “For those of you who know Terry, you know he has lead the organization with purpose and a truly caring heart,” said Gillingham.

    Gillingham’s heartwarming remarks commended Moulton for his unwavering devotion to Navy Medicine Readiness and made light of his attention to metrics and selfies.

    Before closing the ceremony, Moulton took a couple moments to thank his friends, family and colleagues for their love and support throughout his career.

    “I am very honored and humbled by all of your presence. As I was thinking about today, I have been filled with fond memories and a lot of thank yous. It’s been a great journey,” said Moulton.

    He went on to highlight many of the great memories that filled the years of his Service and recognized those who mentored him along the way. Moulton closed the ceremony with a 1963, John F. Kennedy quote that resonated with him throughout his career.

    “Ask any man what he has done to make his life worthwhile and I think I can respond with a great deal of satisfaction and pride by saying, I served in the United States Navy.”

    “So I bid you goodbye and thank you for all you have done for me and my family,” said Moulton.
