In Memoriam

AADR is saddened to learn of the passing of former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop on February 25. Dr. Koop served as Surgeon General from November 1981 through October 1989. As a tireless advocate for public health, he took a stand on controversial issues including AIDS, abortion, diet, drugs and cigarettes. It was under Dr. Koop’s direction that the Commissioned Corps Revitalization was initiated – he directed officers to be in uniform  in recognition of the original mission of the Corps.
