“The tools and techniques that we create here over the next few years could change the way we do medicine; making it safer, more effective, and more available, especially in resource-limited environments.”

These rousing words were a fitting opening on 15 July when TATRC’s newest Director, COL Jeremy Pamplin, brought the entire team together for its inaugural quarterly Town Hall meeting. The first of many planned Town Halls, the gathering provided both the team and COL Pamplin a great opportunity to engage in open dialogue regarding future courses of action for the organization.

COL Pamplin kicked things off with a personal introduction, and proceeded to outline his leadership philosophies, the strengths of the organization, the importance of working together as a team, and the direction in which we should be focusing our efforts and attention.

Summarizing his core ideals as Director, COL Pamplin said, “My big three are: Never be content with the status quo; create an environment that people want to be part of; and be honest with yourself and others.”

COL Pamplin also touched on how the Army Futures Command motto, “Forge the Future,” is greatly in-line with TATRC’s own principles and goals, stating, “This might not be our motto, but we should embrace it wholeheartedly.”

Described as being “born for this role, and being at the right place at the right time,” COL Pamplin rallied the troops with his thought-provoking and inspirational message. Following his opening address, the floor was opened to the team for questions, answers, and comments, resulting in productive and interactive dialogue.

Overall, the event was a resounding success and a motivating morale booster, and the team is greatly looking forward to proceeding under COL Pamplin’s leadership!
