He was a principal planner for the Department of Defense (DoD) anthrax and smallpox immunization programs, authored the first Joint Forces Command model for medical response to domestic weapons of mass destruction incidents and natural disasters, and created the Joint/Interagency Civil Support Training Center (JISCTC) at Fort Dix among many other career accomplishments. Don is an valuable member of the Firestorm Expert Council, and we are proud to support Don and AADM.”
