"Congratulations on receiving an 'Excellent' rating for the HSI!" exclaimed Tan "You should be very proud of this accomplishment."

The report continued by citing some of the group's specific achievements.

"Col Tan and his executive staff are successful in meeting the mission by providing safe and innovative healthcare to the Gunfighter community of 3,700 active duty and 10,100 beneficiaries.

One of the individuals recognized by wing leadership for her part in the inspection was 2nd Lt. Victoria Weiger, medical readiness flight commander.
