Tucker A. Drury

Major Tucker A. Drury commanded the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force – Afghanistan Forward Surgical Element in Tarin Kowt during 2012.  When not deployed, Major Drury is an Air Force orthopaedic surgeon stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska. He is firmly committed to expanding the role of medical engagements in small wars.

It is time to rethink the role of conventional U.S. military medical assets in COIN operations.
