Army Chief of Staff GEN McConville Models “Ike” Jacket

General McConville, Chief of Staff of the Army, was spotted at Massachusetts General Hospital sporting the optional “Ike” Jacket for the Army Green Uniform.

In recognition of their dedication to the health care of military veterans and the families of fallen heroes, leaders from Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program, received two of the nation’s most prestigious honors. The Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service–the second-highest award presented by the Secretary of Defense–was presented to Tom Werner, Chairman of the Boston Red Sox and the Red Sox Foundation. The Public Service Commendation Medal–the fourth-highest public service decoration in the U.S. Army–was awarded to Peter L. Slavin, MD, President, Massachusetts General Hospital, Ross Zafonte, DO, chief of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Mass General, and Michael Allard, chief operating officer for Home Base. Each recipient received their award, presented by Army Chief of Staff General Jim McConville, during a ceremony yesterday at the Pentagon. Congratulations to all!
