VICENZA, Italy – As Col. Alfonso Alarcon stood before his medical colleagues at the Association of the United States Army medical symposium held this May in San Antonio, Texas, he discussed U.S. Army Africa’s role in supporting medical missions on the African continent.

Many were hearing about the command for the first time.

“There was tremendous interest expressed both at our exhibit booth and during breakout sessions,” said Alarcon, U.S. Army Africa’s senior medical officer. “This symposium was an opportunity to reinforce our message to senior Army medical leaders that Army medical personnel will play a key role in U.S. Army Africa’s future success.”
