During 2014 and 2015, the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps was on the front lines of the outbreak – staffing the Monrovia Medical Unit, a 25-bed field hospital where officers provided care to healthcare workers that posed the risk of being infected with the Ebola Viral Disease. During this response, the Commissioned Corps created a “Survivor Wall” from a bin of scraps left by the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division.
