Army medical logistics leader recognized after nearly 40-year career – DVIDS
Chris Roan’s nearly 40-year career with the U.S. Army started with an unexpected piece of mail.
That mail — a packet from a military junior college inquiring about his performance on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, or ASVAB — helped set Roan, a recent high school graduate struggling to find his way, on a course to become one of the Army’s top medical logistics experts.
“I just fell in love with the military,” Roan said of his time at the now-closed Kemper Military School in Boonville, Missouri. “I had no idea what I wanted to do when I joined the Army, but it was the structure of the military that brought me direction. It gave me purpose.”
