Mary Hall

Rear Adm. Mary Fields Hall was the former director of the nurse corps and the first Navy nurse to command a hospital. In July 1983, Hall became commanding officer of Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, becoming the first nurse ever to serve in command of a MTF. Just two years later she took the helm of Naval Hospital Long Beach, California, earning the distinction as the first nurse to hold two successive MTF commands.
