Overview
David Crumbley spent three years in the US Army as a Medic where he was mentored by Army Nurse Corps Officers who motivated him to pursue his education. Upon completion of his enlistment obligation he went on to receive his nursing degree, and in 1993 was commissioned as a Nurse Corps Officer into the United States Navy. During his 20 years as a Naval Officer he held several leadership positions, implemented three nurse-managed wound care programs including the Complex Wound and Limb Salvage Program at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda. He was responsible for numerous wound care innovations impacting the care of the wounded throughout the DoD continuum of care. He retired from the US Navy in 2012 holding the rank of Commander.
