Maj. Gen. Dire, 807th MCDS Commander speaks at GE Military Externship Graduation
Maj. Gen. Daniel Dire, Commanding General for the 807th Medical Command located in Salt Lake City, Utah, was the U.S. Army Representative during the ceremony where he addressed the graduates. Dire stated, "my prediction for the graduates is that in 10, 15, or 20 years down the road, you will be senior leaders of medical units in the Army Reserve. Some of you will be command sergeant majors." This graduation marks the 100th Army Reserve soldier to graduate from the externship. The externship for biomedical equipment specialists with the 68A military occupational speciality (MOS), is a professional development program, a non-degree or additional skill identifier (ASI) producing program. The externship program aligns with GE's commitment to strengthening America's global competitiveness by building a more highly skilled workforce and supporting the integration of the nation's veterans into the industry.
