The Army Veterinary Corp & Day 3 of Unpacking

Aloha Everyone,

In response to a number of you who indicated your curiosity of what does Jenny do as a veterinarian with the U.S. Army, here is a quick summary:  

1). It is one of the six corps of medical specialists that make up the U.S. Army Medical Department.

2).  The Army Veterinary Corps is composed of professionals with military, public health and specialty skill.

3).  As veterinarians in the U.S. Army, they ensure public health capabilities through veterinary medical and surgical care; food safety for military personnel and families; and biomedical research and development.

4).  The Veterinary Corps also provides food safety expertise in response to natural disasters and other emergencies.

5). The Veterinary Corps is in charge of conducting and overseeing all Department of Defense veterinary activities—in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force at installations from Washington, D.C., to California, Hawaii, as well as in more than 90 countries around the world.

J.J. and I stopped by at U-Haul Rental in Bremerton to inquire what are the requirements in order to attach a trailer to Honu. After examining the interior space of the smallest trailer, we reserved one for Friday morning next week.

Jeff, J.J. and I made a donation run to Goodwill with 3 large boxes filled with miscellaneous items. A hot lunch break at a Vietnamese restaurant was wonderful before J.J. and I resumed our unpacking boxes. A very productive day!

Aloha -- Cathi
