Greetings!! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. PCS moves should be in full swing and hope they are going well and smooth. New PGY 1’s, 2’s and fellows will be settling in and beginning their programs, good luck to all.

First off wanted to say congrats to Jim Lynch, Dave Haight and Kevin DeWeber, current and former Army family medicine sports medicine physicians who were chosen to support the US Olympic Teams in Rio!! Go USA.

Congrats to those recently chosen for promotion to Major and Lieutenant Colonel, well done. Promotions are getting more competitive and are no longer a guarantee. PME, increasing responsibilities and a variety of duty stations are becoming even more important today than they were in the past.

A lot of you have already gotten emails from HRC stating that you have been identified as eligible to PCS. Three years’ time on station triggers that email and if you have any questions contact MAJ Oliver at HRC.

Personal and Professional readiness are more important than ever. Ensure you are maintaining your own medical readiness – PHA, etc. and your professional readiness – credentials, mandatory training, PME, etc. I would encourage everyone to visit the MC HRC page often for the latest, most relevant information.

If there is anything I can do or you have questions please do not hesitate to email me at shawn.f.kane.mil@mail.mil or shawn.kane@soc.mil or give me a call at 910-432-5242.
