Why I Serve: Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Edition

On any given day there are more than 380,000 Sailors, active-duty and Reserve, ready to defend America, around the world and around the clock. From diverse backgrounds, they join the Navy to serve their country with honor, courage and commitment.

For each Sailor, the drive to serve is different.

The #WhyIServe campaign provides our Sailors an opportunity to share their personal “why I serve” statements.

This week’s #WhyIServe submissions are from hospital corpsmen stationed at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

This medical center has nearly 8,500 dedicated staff members who make it their daily mission to serve our nation’s active duty military, returning war heroes, veterans, their families and our Nation’s leaders.

Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Alexander Ruschetti, from Hudson, N.Y. shares his #WhyIServe statement from the Naval Postgraduate Dental School in Bethesda, Md.
