Today's Department of Defense Entomologist serves in a variety of positions outside those of conventional research or training and education. Military operations, humanitarian aid, and natural disasters have provided unique opportunities for our Corps. It is those opportunities we will explore through the presentation of several vignettes. Experiences ranging from serving as the Force Health Protection Officer for the Multinational Corps, Operation Iraqi Freedom to identifying technology gaps as part of a research and development Field Assistance in Science and Technology Team. This collection of vignettes will provide a unique opportunity to explore the multifaceted experiences of the Military Entomologist.
