Heroes Behind the Mask

Throughout 2020, America’s men and women in uniform – active duty, Reserve and National Guard – worked day and night in communities across the country and around the world to confront the COVID-19 crisis. MHS personnel, whether they are doctors, nurses, technicians, administrators or anyone else, have been critical to the fight against COVID. They are keeping our medical facilities clean, ensuring we have personal protective equipment and other medical supplies, and providing the guidance and administration to keep the MHS functioning during this crisis. The MHS salutes the brave medical service members, civilians and contract employees who sacrificed so much and worked so hard – you are all integral and valued contributors to our team and our mission.










Messages for Communicators:

  • America’s men and women in uniform – active duty, Reserve and National Guard – have worked day and night in communities across the country and around the world to confront the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Across the MHS, tens of thousands of professionals are agile, adaptable in a crisis, and dedicated to finding solutions to complex problems, each an integral and valued contributor to our team and mission.
  • The collective response by MHS professionals to the COVID-19 pandemic reinforces our reputation for innovation, with practical applications beyond military medicine.
  • Our priority is to protect our people, sustain our ability to complete the mission, and support the whole of government effort to combat COVID-19.
  • Individually and collectively, are we prepared to accomplish the medical tasks the Department asks of us, supporting national COVID efforts, or operational missions around the world.
  • No one has ever performed this kind of medical activity at this scale before, with such significant impact on daily work and personal lives – there is no “business as usual” in this pandemic.
