COL(P) Teyhen confirmed for promotion to BG

The U.S. Senate has confirmed COL Deydre S. Teyhen for promotion to the rank of Brigadier General (BG). COL(P) Teyhen is the first Active Duty Army Medical Specialist Corps Officer, Physical Therapist, and SP Corps Chief to attain general officer rank.

A quote by the author Jacqueline Novogratz states, “Honor what is most beautiful about the past, and build it into the promise of the future”. As we reflect upon the strong 74 year history of our Corps, let us take a moment to honor and pay tribute to all the SP Corps Leaders, past and present, whose vision, leadership, and innovation paved the way for such an opportunity to exist today. Let us also strive to build an even stronger future together.

COL(P) Teyhen's promotion date is not yet announced.  Congratulations to her and the SP Corps!
