Remembering Capt. Calkins, the First Leader of the Medical Service Corps

When Rear Adm. Matthew Case took the helm as the Director of the Navy Medical Service Corps in May 2022, he was following a tradition that extended back to September 29, 1954, when Capt. Willard Charles Calkins became the first leader of the corps. Like Case, it was a position for which Calkins was primed. CAPT Willard Calkins (1899-1981), served at the first Chief of the Navy Medical Service Corps from 1954 to 1958
