    It's quite disturbing the lack of FMF repersentation on the FORCM staff. Out of 6 Navy Senior and Master Chiefs. There are currently only 2 who hold an FMF pin. One is leaving quite sad and disturbing.

    Luke,

    The Force Master Chief also holds the Enlisted Fleet Marine Force Warfare Specialist Designation. The staff of the Force Master Chief must represent all areas within Navy Medicine to include surface, submarine, Fleet Forces, FMF, etc, We currently have a wide range of experience to advise the Force on the issues facing the Hospital Corps. If you have a specific concern or issue that you feel is not being addressed, I encourage you to bring them to your chain of command or feel free to contact me directly.
