Major Dr. Pete Emmons, College of Dental Medicine Faculty & United States Army Reserve, Deployed to Fight COVID-19

April 23, 2020

Pete Emmons was deployed by the Army Reserve in March to be a member of an Urban Augmentation Medical Task Force. People may wonder why a dentist for these COVID teams…these teams are built for emergency management with FEMA. They include dentists for any type of emergency work that comes to them, including COVID-19 patients. Dr. Emmons is a person of high character and enjoys serving in the Army Reserve. He is willing and committed to service. He is happily married to his wife, Pam and has three children. As his Army Reserve Commander, Thank you Pete, Pam and family for your sacrifice!
