Cmdr. Pete Bradford is playing a critical role in the U.S. Navy’s efforts to maintain a healthy and ready fighting force in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
As a member of the nurse corps serving with Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command Jacksonville, this Jacksonville resident is one of the 139 service members assigned to Task Force Southeast - Jacksonville, the primary Department of Defense support organization for the Federal Emergency Management Agency response to COVID-19.
“I serve as the assistant officer-in-charge for the medical staff,” Bradford said. “Our goal is to collaborate with FEMA, Florida Department of Emergency Management and the city of Jacksonville, to administer vaccinations to those seeking protection from the coronavirus.”
The DOD remains committed to breaking the cycle of transmission as it provides support to approved FEMA requests.
