Col Franklin is a native of Texarkana, Texas, and is the commander of Public Health Command-Pacific. Here the Colonel is talking to Lt. Melvin Rolon, a native of Aibonito, Puerto Rico. The Lieutenant is a medical administration officer assigned to the amphibious assault ship USS Boxer (LHD 4). He and Col. Brad Franklin discuss medical capabilities during a ship familiarization tour. Public Health Command-Pacific’s Public Health Activity in San Diego provides in-port food inspectors to ships homeported at Naval Base San Diego, including Boxer, a Wasp-class amphibious ship.

This photo was taken on December 5, 2022, by U.S. Navy Mass Communications Specialist 3rd Class Bradley Kaminski.

As always, we consider it an honor and privilege to feature our hometown heroes whenever we can. Without them and those that came before them, none of what we do and the freedoms we enjoy are possible.

If you're looking for a great day trip for the whole family may I recommend a fun outing at the Alligator Farm & Petting Zoo in Hot Springs, Arkansas? My wife has been visiting this fun attraction since she was a little girl, we manage to get around to seeing it every couple of years or so and for the most part, it stays pretty much the same, but it's always fun to pet a baby gater.
