"The hands-on, active care of doctors of chiropractic and their advice on a healthy lifestyle are essential to our military men and women." Retired U.S. Army Brigadier General & First Female West Point Graduate to be promoted to that position - Becky Halstead Brigadier General
Becky Halstead shares with the public her positive experiences with chiropractic care. Halstead served 27 years with the United States Army, is the first female in U.S. history to command in combat at the strategic level, and is a recipient of the 2007 national Women's History Project Generations of Women Moving History Forward. She was the first female graduate of West Point to be promoted Brigadier General.
"The year I was deployed to Iraq I my friends and family - and my chiropractor!" asserts Halstead, noting that chiropractic care is available through the U.S. armed forces healthcare delivery system at 25% of the U.S. military treatment facilities and just a little more then half of active duty troops actually have access to a chiropractor. "Personally, I hope someday chiropractic care becomes a standard component of our military's healthcare program, so that all of those serving, and their dependents can have the opportunity to benefit from the care that only a Doctor of Chiropractic can provide."
