Medical Support Technician
“That no matter what they’re going through — their families, their dads and husbands are away — they still have a smile; they’re very courteous. That makes our job easier when they’re so polite, so understanding and caring, and so we try to give that back to them.” For video clip, click here.
Lt. Col. (Dr.) Edward McDaniel
Internal Medicine Physician
“I love taking care of the patients here at Brooke Army Medical Center. They’re such a wonderful group – retirees, their family members, active duty personnel. They really want to take care of themselves and get better; [they’re] really committed to their health.” For video clip, click here.

Staff Maxillofacial Prosthodontist
“What I most appreciate about our patients here is not only that they do serve or have served our country, but they’re also very appreciative of the treatment that we do and the treatment we provide for them. And they’re very appreciative of the doctors and staff.” For video clip, click here.
“What I most appreciate is the opportunity to give back. Being a veteran myself, growing up in a military background, the chance to give back to the sacrifice of veterans here and seeing their willingness to get better on their own. The chance to do that for them … that’s what I really like about it.” For video clip, click here.
“The things they go through in war. When they come back they have to come through the transition of knowing a difference. And that difference is, they have to get better. I thank them for that.” For video clip, click here.
