JTF-Bravo Medical Element Welcomes New Commander
U. S. Army Col. David Wolken, the new Medical Element (MEDEL) commander, speaks to the more than 100 Joint Task Force-Bravo Airmen, Soldiers, and Sailors which included other commanders from Joint Task Force-Bravo mission support commands and representatives from the Honduras armed forces and local hospital dignitaries, during MEDEL's change of command ceremony at Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras, June 30, 2014. Wolken assumed command from U. S. Army Lt. Col. Huy Luu. Joint Task Force-Bravo's MEDEL is composed of 64 Army personnel who have come together from across the United States and have provided medical care to more than 8,000 people in Honduras over the last 12 months. MEDEL provides preventative medical care, wellness check-ups, dental care, preventative dental care, surgical care, and physical therapy through local partnerships in Comayagua, Tegucigalpa, and through local Medical Readiness Training Exercises (MEDRETES) which are carried out on a weekly basis. MEDEL hosts many training opportunities with the country of Honduras to build strong partnerships between both countries. (Photo by Martin Chahin)
