Greater New York Branch of the COA of the USPHS

***Save the Date***

Dear Fellow COA Officers,    

The Greater New York Commissioned Officers Association (NYCOA) is announcing the 3rd Annual Anchor and Caduceus Dining Out Event.  Show your PHS pride, connect with fellow Officers, and share the experience of a formal military dinner with significant others, family, and/or friends.

This year, the event is held at the site of the US Public Health Service’s largest contribution to the health of the growing nation, Ellis Island. From 1892 to 1924, Ellis Island was America’s largest and most active immigration station. As immigration increased dramatically, the Federal Government also took over the processing of immigrants from the individual states. The Marine Hospital Service was assigned the responsibility for the medical inspection of arriving immigrants at sites such as Ellis Island in New York Harbor. Commissioned officers played a major role in fulfilling the Service's commitment to prevent disease from entering the country. 

We request the pleasure of your company on 6 May 2017:

Remarks by

RADM Hunter, Director of the Division of Commissioned Corps Personnel and Readiness

and a mystery guest*

The uniform of the day is dinner dress blue/service dress blue or black tie/business attire for civilian members and guests of the mess. 

Congratulations to all the Greater New York COA Branch & the Commissioned Corps Officers who took part in the 2016 NYC Veterans Day Parade March on November 11, 2016
