JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
Brooke Army Medical Center celebrated its 275 volunteers during a ceremony held April 21 to name the BAMC Volunteers of the Year. The ceremony was held in conjunction with National Volunteer Week, April 18-24.
“Over the last year, we asked many of our volunteers not to come in to preserve their safety during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said BAMC Commanding General Brig. Gen. Shan Bagby.
Because of the COVID-19 safety protocols, many volunteers weren’t able to serve in their normal capacity and BAMC’s annual Volunteer Recognition ceremony wasn’t held in 2019. So this year, BAMC recognized the volunteers for both 2019 and 2020.
