Horoho is the 43rd Surgeon General of the U.S. Army, the highest-ranking position in the Army's medical department. She's the first non-male, non-physician to assume this role in more than 200 years. (She's a nurse, not a doctor.)
Like many military nurses, male and female, Horoho has a lot of experience working in trauma units. She is a recipient of the Society of Trauma Nurses Leadership Award.
As an authority in her field, Horoho co-authored a chapter on training field hospitals published by the U.S. Army Reserve Command Surgeon. Horoho was honored for her actions at the Pentagon on 9/11 by the American Red Cross and Nursing Spectrum as a "Nurse Hero."
She was also named as the USO's "Woman of the Year" in 2009.
