The Honorable James B. Peake, MD will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Hero of Military Medicine


A Hero of Military Medicine is an individual who has distinguished himself/herself in medical research or clinical care through compassion, excellence and selfless dedication that go above and beyond the call of duty. He or she is committed to advancing military medicine and enhancing the lives and health of our nation's wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans. COL Michael exemplifies excellence in public service. His leadership in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and infectious disease research has impacted both the military and global communities. His career has focused on developing an effective HIV vaccine to protect U.S. and Allied Armed Services, and to reduce the global impact of the disease. He has been a researcher with the US Military HIV Research Program (MHRP) at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research for 23 years, and has been its director since 2006. Under COL Michael's leadership, MHRP has grown in scope and diversity, and has forged extensive collaborations with US agencies and foreign governments, private industry, academia, and non government organizations.

Lt Col Fang is a trauma surgeon and recent director of the US Air Force Center for Sustainment of Trauma and Readiness Skills at the University of Maryland's Shock-Trauma Center, Baltimore, MD. A combat proven warrior, Lt Col Fang has deployed multiple times in support of activities in Iraq and Afghanistan, flying more than 200 primary hours as a Critical Care Air Transport Team Physician. Under his leadership, 63,000 patients from 44 nations evacuated from US Central Command to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, where Lt Col Fang and his team treated 12,000 combat casualties over a six year period, with an astounding 99.5% survival rate.

He or she is committed to advancing military medicine and enhancing the lives and health of our nation's wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans. As a dedicated Hospital Corpsman and Independent Duty Corpsman, HM1 Enos was selflessly committed to the health and well-being of his fellow Marines and Sailors. He placed himself in harm's way countless times while providing the best possible care for patients wounded while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

HM1 Enos's dedication to furthering his education in military medicine consistently improved his cutting edge instructions to all he trained, and allowed him to deliver the best possible care for all of his patients. HM1 Enos's utmost devotion to duty earned him the highest respect from the Marines, Sailors and civilians with whom he worked. On August 17, 2012, while conducting combat operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan, HM1 Enos gave his life for his country.
