Capt. Jean Bernard Le Gall
FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (Nov. 16, 2009) — Jean Bernard Le Gall, of Waynesville, was recently promoted from the rank of first lieutenant to captain in the Missouri Army National Guard.

Le Gall has been with the Missouri National Guard for five years with an additional 10 years of active-duty Army experience as an enlisted soldier. He is a physician assistant and officer in charge of the medical section for the active Guard 7th Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team at Fort Leonard Wood.

“This promotion gives me more chances to excel, more responsibility and a greater opportunity to help the junior officers and enlisted under my leadership,” Le Gall said.

Along with his duties with the unit, Le Gall also works three days a week — two in family practice and one in the emergency room — at General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital.

Le Gall earned the promotion through his dedication to his section’s preparedness, said Lt. Col. Raymond White, the unit’s commander.

“He is a top-notch professional officer,” White said of Le Gall. “Since coming to the team a year ago, he has made tremendous improvements in the medical section which he leads. Whether it’s ensuring the health and safety of the people on the team or taking care of patients at the hospital, you can always count on him to provide the best care possible.”

Le Gall is a 1989 graduate of North Miami Beach Senior High School in Florida and graduated from the University of Nebraska in 2008 with a master’s degree in physician assistant studies.

Le Gall shares this promotion with his wife of six years, Sandra.

“This promotion is as much mine as it is Sandra’s because she has been my backbone in my military endeavors,” Le Gall said.

He also is supported in his military career by their children.
