Saw this guy on tv. Had to rewind to see the uniform.

Recommended Posts


The USPHS is one of the eight uniformed services in USA. This is Vice Admiral Adams, the Surgeon General of the US.  The uniform is NAVY.  I freeze framed it to get a look at the hat device. If I get curious later I will look up the ribbons.

One of 8 uniformed services but not a military service...?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Public_Health_Service

 

But it does fall under the UCMJ if militarized under executive order.

Weird.

Almost a Navy uniform.one wonders why it’s the Surgeon General and not the Surgeon Admiral.

I recall when a Coop was chosen A friend of mine said, “ At least they’re chose a Navy guy”. :lol:

There are 7 Uniformed Services, USPHS medical staff work with the Navy , CG , IHS , etc 

there uniforms  are mainly navy unless they are wearing the blue ODUs which are CG without the CG shield.

The surgeon general is equivalent to a 3 star admiral.

I was trying to find the NOAA uniform devices. There seams to be no website (that I could find :ph34r:) dedicated to NOAA. Many pictures of NOAA with USCG but not very clear. I gave up.

I worked with a guy who was a USPHS officer during the Vietnam era. His comment:

 

"The Yipee's  motto at that time was "Better Red than Dead." Ours was "Better Pink than Inconvenienced."" I believe he worked in DC.
