- To members of the D.C. Metropolitan Area Branch,
This Smart Brief is a journal style email message intended to help keep you informed about various uniformed service benefits available to PHS officers. Please note that some offers may only apply to Armed Forces members; however, these Smart Briefs will help promote awareness and push toward including the common language of “Uniformed Services” in more legislation and benefits packages.
Click here for the current posting (or recent briefs), please forward any questions or comments to CDR Robert Windom at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome any hot topics or special discounts that you wish to share with your fellow officers.
