Perry headed to White House
Capt. Kyle Perry, a critical care nurse in the 81st Inpatient Operations Squadron intensive care unit at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, will soon join an elite medical staff when he becomes a member of the White House clinic. Perry reports there in October for the three-year assignment. The staff is led by the president’s physician, a Navy captain, and is comprised of medics from the Army, Navy and Air Force. The medical unit cares for the President, his family, the White House staff and visitors and the job requires two to three weeks of travel each month. The clinic is located on the grounds adjacent to the White House and five to six staff members provide care in the clinic.
Before leaving Keesler, Perry will attend flight nurse training at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and survival school at Fairchild AFB, Wash. He anticipates further training after he begins his new duties.
