Uniform connections: Military ranks high in these staffers’ lives

Uniform connections: Military ranks high in these staffers’ lives

The list of UMMC faculty and staff with a military history is as vast as the impact it made on their lives. 

Michael Estes, for one, will forever value "the sense of discipline, integrity, and honor that was instilled in me all those years." Estes, chief human resources officer, served in the Navy for six years. 

 Others who served include: 

  • Dr. James Keeton, who recently stepped down as vice chancellor for health affairs and dean of the School of Medicine (Navy)
  • Kevin Cook, CEO of adult hospitals (Marines)
  • David Putt, CEO of UMMC-Grenada (Navy)
  • Dr. Rick deShazo, professor of medicine and pediatrics, and Billy S. Guyton Distinguished Professor (Army)
  • Dr. Gary Reeves, dean of the School of Dentistry (Army and Army National Guard)

 Here are the stories of a few more.
