MHS Remembers 9/11

Patriots Day The Defense Health Agency commemorates the 20th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001—a searing moment in American history that remains all too vivid for many today. Not only were military medical personnel critical in treating and saving lives of victims of the attack on the Pentagon, but our military medical forces also responded to ground zero in New York. Many of the medical heroes of 9/11 continue to serve their country and patients, even 20 years later.

Delivering deployed medical support and combat medicine in the 20 years since the 9/11 attacks has revolutionized many fields of military medicine. We want to recognize advances in the MHS since 9/11, and highlight how military medicine contributes to medical practice. Medical advances since 9/11 continue to improve care for service members, dependents and retirees, help service members recover from illness and injury, and save lives in our local communities.
