With Pride and Distinction (WP&D) Volume 8
The JOAG Communications and Publications, Uniform Subcommittee is pleased to present the eighth volume of the uniform announcement entitled, “With Pride and Distinction”.
The uniform announcement was created to compliment the JOAG Journal “Uniform Corner” article. It is our hope that these resources will educate and assist junior officers on the appropriate wear of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps uniform. To make this information more accessible to junior officers, in the near future.
Officers will be able to view these resources on the JOAG website, Junior Officer Resources section, under ‘Uniform Corner’ http://www.usphs.gov/corpslinks/JOAG/resources_withpride.aspx
Do you have a uniform question or an issue you’d like addressed? Email the Uniform Subcommittee to have your questions answered in an upcoming edition. Emails can be sent to LCDR Kristina Estes Kristina.Estes@fda.hhs.gov and LT Jessica Schwarz Jessica.Schwarz@ihs.gov
