General helped bring gold standard here

  • Follow Letters

Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver has declared today "Brigadier General Donald M. Bradshaw Day.

Augusta has been fortunate to have Brig. Gen. Bradshaw's leadership over Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center and the Army's Southeastern Regional Medical Command since June 2, 2005, until today. Brig. Gen. Bradshaw's retirement is a good time to reflect on this gentleman's contributions to both community and country.

Under Brig. Gen. Bradshaw's command, partnerships and collaborations benefiting service members, retirees and their families have expanded. He has strengthened an already powerful and unique relationship with the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center, where more than 640 soldiers, Marines, sailors, airmen and Coast Guardsmen have been treated at the nation's only Active Duty Rehabilitation Unit located within a VA facility.

Our service members get the gold standard of coordinated care in this unique joint unit.

Brig. Gen. Bradshaw's legacy can be found not only in Augusta, but nationwide. He chaired the Army Surgeon General's Traumatic Brain Injury Task Force, and established a clear picture of the processes and research involved with the prevention, identification, treatment, rehabilitation, family support and transition of service members with TBI.

Augusta is fortunate that not only has Brig. Gen. Bradshaw completed his 32-year Army career here, but is also now calling Augusta home.

Please join us in thanking Brig. Gen. Bradshaw and his family for such distinguished service that has benefited so many service members, retirees and their families.

Also important is that under BG Bradshaw's leadership, Eisenhower Army Medical Center provides cardiac surgery for VA patients unavailable at the Augusta VA.
