The Society of Federal Health Professionals honored Sgt. Maj. Christopher R. Marshall from the U.S. Army Medical Department Center & School at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston with the Lewis L. Seaman Enlisted Award for Outstanding Operational Support in the senior enlisted category.


Marshall was competitively selected from nominees across all three services to receive the award. He serves as the Sergeant Major of Directorate of Training and Academic Affairs, AMEDDC&S, U.S. Army Health Readiness Center of Excellence.


Originally established by the Association of Military Surgeons in the United States in 1900, the award is named after the late Maj. Lewis Livingston Seaman, a surgeon with the First U.S. Volunteers during the Spanish American War.


The award recognizes one junior and one senior enlisted medical healthcare professional who has made a significant impact in the areas of patient care, clinical support or healthcare management, as well as to their service’s medical mission.


The award ceremony took place during the association’s annual continuing education meeting Nov. 30 at the Potomac Ballroom of the Gaylord National Harbor Resort and Convention Center in Washington D.C.


Marshall was accompanied by his wife, Susan; daughter, Helen Beck; and son-in-law Sgt. Michael Beck, U.S. Marine Corps.
