Offer: Join the Army (Reserve) of One

I got a phone message the other day, and today I got around to returning it.


“You are an ER Doctor, correct?” was the question.  Yep.

“As you may know, we’re experiencing a critical shortage of Emergency Physicians in the Army Reserve, and I’ve been commissioned to contact as many Emergency Physicians as I can to offer them information about the Army Reserve.  Are you interested?”.  Nope.  (I was nicer than that, but that was the gist of it).


I’m wondering how they got my number; since they called the work number, I’m guessing they got hold of an ACEP directory.


  1. Hmm.. I wonder if it will ever get so critical that they let gay soldiers return to work…
