HONOLULU--In a morning ceremony on August 30, Capt. Sean A. McMurry was relieved of command of Tripler Army Medical Center’s Medical Company Bravo by Capt. Dennis R. Mobley.
In his remarks at the ceremony, Tripler’s Troop Commander, Col. Paul Wingo, said he expected McMurry to do an equally outstanding job in his new role as the aide-de-camp for Tripler’s commanding general. Wingo noted that earlier in his own Army career, he also served as commanding officer of Company B and then went on to be Tripler Army Medical Center’s general’s aide.
Mobley, Company B’s new commanding officer, previously served as the charge nurse on the inpatient psychiatry unit at Tripler. Mobley has also served in Korea, with the 121st General Hospital as a charge nurse, acting executive officer and as acting commander for the hospital’s headquarters and headquarters company. Among other assignments, he has also served as a staff nurse at Martin Army Community Hospital at Fort Benning, Ga., from where he deployed to Egypt during Operation Bright Star 02-01.
A native of Alabama, Mobley entered the Army in 1995 as a combat medic and pharmacy technician. In 1998, he entered the University of Mobile on a “Green-to-Gold”scholarship and received his commission in 2000, along with his nursing degree. He also completed the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse course at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C.
Medical Company Bravo is the largest of four companies at Tripler Army Medical Center. Its Soldiers include over 700 physicians, nurses and a variety of medical enlisted professionals who provide medical support to active duty and eligible beneficiaries within the Pacific Regional Medical Command.
