What is your background with the military?
25 year Air Force career – Aircraft Maintenance/Acquisition & Logistics. Retired Colonel.
How long have you been in your community?
Why did you want to become an AC member?
I really like what I learned about the organization. I wanted to continue to give back and support people that I have stood side by side with my entire adult life. This was an awesome opportunity that I could not pass up. I respect and admire those who served in any capacity. This includes all family members, who often feel the most stress and or heartbreak.
How do you feel the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic adds value to the military community?
I think that the Clinic delivers care that is accessible, comprehensive, safe and responsive which will resonate throughout the military community. Because of the many sacrifices that both the member and their family have to make in this profession, the Clinic will help create a healthy existence, improve morale and improve operational readiness, all of which in one form or together is intrinsically valued by everyone.
What is your vision for the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic?
I envision the Clinic to be prominent in our greater Jacksonville area and to be a top caregiver option for all those that it serves. To be consistent in what they offer military members, veterans, families, partners, caregivers and others.
