Lt. Gen. Robert Miller, 24th Surgeon General of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force, toured the 90th Medical Group’s base clinic and conducted several office calls during a visit of the Mighty Ninety April 4, 2022, on F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming.

Miller toured the clinic to better understand the challenges and successes each section faces.

“My goal is to visit every medical treatment facility over a three year span - which COVID did not make easy," said Miller. "We’re just trying to catch up to say just to thank your medics. You're doing a lot of great things here, and we want to learn about the unique challenges here.”  

Additionally, Miller made a point to tell medical Airmen that his office wanted to know more about those challenges.

“It is important to the Chief and I that we hear what’s on your minds,” said Miller. “I appreciate being here and seeing everything first hand is really very helpful.” 

In his role, Miller advises the Secretary of the Air Force, the Air Force Chief of Staff, the Space Force Chief of Space Operations and the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs. He discusses matters about the health of the entire force and the health of Airmen and Guardians. 

Miller is also board certified in both general pediatrics and developmental-behavioral pediatrics and is qualified in aerospace medicine. He has served as the chief of the medical staff at the military treatment facility and major command level, a squadron commander, group commander, a MAJCOM command surgeon, and as a combatant commander command surgeon.

Miller’s role also includes making decisions about the delivery of medical services, developing plans, programs and procedures to support the force. By visiting the 90th Medical Clinic and meeting the Airmen, it’s a chance to see how different clinics across the Air Force run, and how they can become more efficient.
