Hospitalman Andrew Cline, a native of Newport News, Virginia, is playing a critical role in the U.S. Navy’s efforts to maintain a healthy and ready fighting force in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic.

As a hospital corpsman working at Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Unit, Branch Health Clinic, Parris Island, South Carolina, Cline’s skills are vital to maintaining the health of the sailors in the Beaufort area, and by extension, the readiness of the Navy’s operational ships and submarines on which they serve.
