27th Chief, ANC Appointee Named

Army Surgeon General LTG R. Scott Dingle announced on 7 November that COL James D. Burk, AN, has been appointed as the 27th Chief of the Army Nurse Corps. COL Burk is also currently serving as the FORSCOM Surgeon. COL Burk's nomination for promotion to the rank of Brigadier General is being held hostage, along with a number of other flag officer promotions, by Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville over a matter entirely unrelated to these officers' qualifications.
